So, I've got a bike with SLX shifters that whilst they shift reasonably well, I dont like the amount of thumb movement I have to make to get them to shift up.
The rest of the bike is XT and I've got a set of these cranks which I presume are 9 speed?
Since they haven't seen many miles it seems a waste to ditch them and move to 10sp. So is there a big difference between SLX shifters and XT shifters, or should I try and hunt down a set of XTR 970 shifters which seem to be increasingly difficult to find, and it doesn't look like Shimano will be producing anymore 9sp XTR
Or can I stick a set of SRAM 9 sp shifters with this set up and have it work great?
Any help will be much appreciated
