This doesn't look great but if you look very closely it seems this has M950 XTR shifters. Possibly M900 front canti too.

Only a tenner if you are local:

I dunno, M950 and M550 don't look so different from a distance in a blurry photo, though for a tenner it's worth a punt.

DSP... I'm struggling to make a case for those being M950 shifters!

The blades look Huuuuge. :D

I think it's only SLX being the other shimano model with three letters that are one the back of the indicator window.

Hmmm I see what you mean about three letters and they certainly look more XTR than SLX!

Ok checked on a proper computer and it's got one of those super-zoom listings which doesn't work on phones and it deffo says xtr (sorry to doubt you Paul!)

But the auction just ended...

Yes, I see now, I was assuming combi shifter brake units, but it's just the shifters...
