After re-framing my mountain bike I needed to get a few new parts.

Needing a very specific front shifter (top swing, 34.9), this XT model was available at a decent price.

That was several hundred miles ago.

It was easy to setup initially and I have not touched it since that first test ride.

Shifts are smooth and accurate and lever effort is low.

For what I needed, this is perfect and it works extremely well.

The only potential issue for anyone facing installation is that you cannot disassemble the cage as it is riveted rather than bolted together, you are therefore forced to split the chain to install it, this was not an issue for me as I had the luxury of working with a new chain.

This derailleur is rock solid. What else can I say about it. I was so frustrated with my old Deore and by chance was told that it was shot. So, imagine my surprise to find out that all my crankset gear changing woes were easily solved by spending less than $50 on this derailleur. Installation was very easy. Reading the instructions was all it took to adjust the high and low screw adjustments to dial in perfect shifting through all three rings. I'm happy with this purchase. I should have bought it soon as my old derailleur started failing on me.

I own a 2004 Rocky Mountain edge full suspension which I bought new. I had probably only put 1500-1800 miles on it. I recently have found the motivation and time to dig it out again and hit my favorite trails riding about 25-45 miles a week. The first thing I noticed after dusting off the bike was my front derailleur was in sorry shape. (Along with the chain, chain rings, and rear deraileur).

I purchased this exact model from REI, as well as the Shimano XT SL-M770 Rapidfire Shift Lever. I am a mechanical person by nature, but have had little experience actually working on my bike other that the occasional derailleur adjustment. I had to purchase a better chain brake to get my old chain off, but well worth the $15. Installation was straight forward. The instructions were a little confusing as they put multiple products on the same instruction sheet. Once I figured out the path on the directions it worked out great. It did take some fiddling, but once it was set, it feels like a whole new bike again, even better than stock.

I am sure some bike nuts will have some comments, but I really like this XT package, I did the whole bike. I intended on doing a component at a time with the money was available for it, but I splurged on the rest after I put this component on. I have not gone through many bikes, and I cannot compare my experience to other derailleurs other than the LX that came with the bike, but I can say that it shifts quickly accurately, both uphill and downhill under heavy loads, and I am really happy. It has made me a more efficient rider, which to me is a whole lot more fun.

I installed this on my 2008 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert and it works great! I removed the E-Type black part from the derailleur and it fits nicely on the frame mount where the old derailleur was. Shifts quick and does it's job.

Bought this for use with my new Niner Sir9. I needed a bottom pull high mount in a 28.2. This one shifts quick. It squeaks when dry, but just spray WD-40 on it and it goes away.

Easy installation. Shifts easily from big crank to small crank. Been riding with this derailleur for 6 months now and still going strong.
