I know it's been asked before, but I have to ask again Jez [as I was thinking about sniping this one]..

Do they work well? Do you notice the difference in shifting or is it as smooth as a stock Shimano/Suntour unit?

kingroon. you are having a giraffe mate!

These things are shite!
Really, they do not work well. They work, when clean. Thats about all I can say.
Bit of mud and its like an auto box for you :)

I have thrown away mechs that work better, but they just don't look as cool

Apparantly non floating top jockey replacement fixes the shifting issue but no - dont race and use hard - these were low volume art mechs!
