When i ordered this shifters loved the look but wasn't expecting them to be too sturdy. when i got them i was pleasantly surprised how sturdy and how good they looked. at first i had some problems with the friction not staying in place, but after figuring out how to adjust the tension, which is nicely placed on the top of the shifter, these work great. i would recommend these to anyone looking for a top mounted shifter, especially those on a budget. not cheaply made though, they work great.
