Nice shifters, but my old ones had more cover for the moving parts which is handy in coastal areas. Derailleurs are the good old fashioned quality which will last. Fast delivery, well done Merlin Cycles.
105's are the best value-for-money gear kit out there in my opinion. Especially at the dirt-cheap price on Merlin Cycles! Silky smooth shifting, solid construction, I can't think of anything bad to say about them.
There are more expensive gear kits out there, but you'll hardly notice any difference between them and these. And these don't cost an arm and a leg.
I was a Campagnolo man, until I tried my friends Shimano 105 transmission, so on my new cycle I went for shimano. They feel smoother and the sti's feel really nice,and fit my hands perfectly. a good buy.
Upgraded my old 105 to the new version and was not disappointed. Shifting is far smoother and looks more tidy with the internal cable routing. Delivery of the order was excellent and within 2 days of placing the order. Overall very pleased with my purchase.
Brilliant piece of kit-all the main controls in one buy-saved a load of time -rather than buying the parts individually-and super fast delivery-First class service
