What left shifter has it got on it?

I have exactly the same comp as you and I replaced my shifters as one side didn't work. I'll have to look in the bat cave and if I can find the left shifter and it works I'll post it over to you.

I had some of those x-press shifters BITD, i did never get used to them. To be honest even the cheapest shifters of shimano like the 70GS or the 100GS were better than those ones.

Bart - big apologies and thanks tommy - i didn't look properly - the lower spec MF's (pathfinder etc) had xpress shifters - i know because as above they aren't very good (very susceptible to cable stretch)

tommy thanks for putting me right :oops:

still a nicer bike :lol:
