Works perfectly as you would expect from XTR, the clutch system really makes everything quiet and smooth, it does increase the pressure needed at the lever end to change gear but I think it makes it feel better.
Great delivery from Merlin as normal.
Bought this M986 version (no where seemed to have a M985) for a jump bike I was putting together as both myself and my wife have run the M985 version without fault for the last 18months on our Scott Scales.
Pretty much identical to the M985 version except it's direct mountable by removing one piece of aluminium (i.e it'll fit a 2011/12 Scott Scale out of the box).
Perfect. Looks like it
The rear mech works like a dream no longer have my chain falling off over rock gardens would buy again
No chain chatter, primed for overtaking other riders on the track in stealth mode.
Great piece of kit. I use this clutch mech with a simple 'top only' chain guide on a 1x10 setup. I've never dropped a chain!
