Excellent value great spec groupset. The brakes as ever are awesome, nice and easy to fit. If you are in the U.K. Just bear in mind that the brakes are 'continental' style I.e. The wrong way round however that is an easy fix, (spare olives and plungers included). Easy to mount all the components. You will struggle to find a groupset like this anywhere else at this price. Great service from Merlin.
This has brought new life to my trusty commuter MTB, which I was contemplating replacing with a new bike, so I bought this slightly on a whim and with very little technical knowledge. I am pleased I bought it. My commuter bike is now better than new. The gear shifts are silky smooth and the power transfer more than marginally improved. Previously I had a triple chainset, but very rarely (i.e. never) used the "granny "ring, hence the move to a double chainset. Best thing I've done. The service from Merlin was superb and the price very competitive. Highly recommended, both product and retailer. Thank you.
Great mix of gear. The SLX brakes are powerful and easy to use. XT and SLX drive train run smoothly and its nice to have the granny ring for steep hill climbs. Easy to follow instructions to build up your own bike!
The SLX Group Set for me, so far has performed the best from all the group sets I have run. If you are looking for a good quality bit of kit that is more than reasonable in price, then this is it!
My 3rd Merlin group set. All boxed parts except for the rear mech. Trickle down effect of Shimano's tech is obvious. Brakes rock! Clutch rear mech reduces noise and runs smoothly. Shifters are a bit chunky but do come with the face plates so you can remove the gear indicators. I run XT on my other bikes and can honestly say that if you want to save some coin, SLX is well worth considering. If you can get past the weight difference, fresh crisp SLX with all the technology is better than XT that's taken a flogging. Well worth considering this option.
Fast delivery, good price. As you would expect from Shimano, all the individual parts are of high quality. The group set was a doddle to install and setup. Really can't see the point of spending the extra cash on XTR. This group set shifts gears beautifully and the brakes are flawless. Would thoroughly recommend.
Amazing value for money! Love this groupset. Disk brakes were a breeze to set up, as well as all the other equipment. Pretty light weight, I see no need to invest in higher end groupsets.
Bargain groupset featuring the best brakes in Shimano's range. The rest of the groupset isn't too shabby either. Flawless shifting, a state of the art clutch mech, fantastic brakes that perform perfectly out of the box. Just watch the front mech - as a conventional one, it may not fit certain FS frames.
Amazingly well priced groupset, you really cannot go wrong with this one, shimano quality and everything shifts and pulls up beautifully, go for it!
Beautiful groupset at amazing price. Really was debating if XT was worth it or not and for me 'casual rider' it's not worth the 'bling' factor and a little bit of weight. SLX Brakes are amazing.
I have about 30 hours on the groupset so far. It replaced the original 9spd SLX triple setup with Elixir brakes that came on my bike in '09. New SLX is crisper overall, the double is cleaner and simpler, and the brakes -- way better in every respect. I'm 200 pounds and regularly do 3,000ft descents, even going from a 185 to 160 rotor in front the Shimano brakes just let you ride better, more controlled and confident. I'm quite surprised at the improvement. I've had top-range stuff before (on the road side). And I'm sure XT and XTR are fantastic, but I just can't see paying the premium given how good SLX is. I'm beginning to think the quality of mid-range stuff is the bike industry's dirty little secret. Installation was straightforward. Even shortening brake lines and switching levers (I'm in the US and run right lever to rear brake) was simple. I'd never done that before, I was a bit nervous, but with a little help from the internet it was no problem. Ordered Wednesday, spent Friday evening taking off the old and putting on the new, had a great ride Saturday. Very satisfied all around.
Very impressed with the SLX groupset. Easy to fit/build to the bike - even shortening the brake hoses proved straight forward - and is so far living up to Shimano's reputation for reliability. Smooth and precise shifting with powerful but well modulated braking and a reasonably low weight for the money. Looks great too!
Excellent groupset. They are big leap from deore and the brakes are far better than most of avid's stuff. The service from Merlin that impresses me the most. Delivered so quick.
The SLX groupset is a fantastic piece of kit for the money, the brakes have a good feel and gearshifting is great and the whole groupset looks pretty smart (I think it looks better than XT)

Exactly as described. Needed more shifter cable housing and end caps that what was supplied. Needed to shorten the front disc brake cable but that is probably normal. Oh and if you are in the USA then you will need to swap sides on the brake lines because they do things backwards in the UK.
Shimano SLX M670 Groupset installed perfectly into my custom painted 29er frame without any issues at all. I would also liked to mention that Merilin Cycles is awesome to purchase from and has great prices along with outstanding customer service. My order was placed on a Sunday and it shiped out the next day and arrived mid-week. I had the groupset installed and was riding my new 29er that weekend!!! 5 stars no doubt!
Absolutely superb group set, very well made Shimano components, very easy to fit and set up, extremely happy.
Great groupset at a fabulous price. Why pay more for XT?
Excellent value for money and delivery service from merlin as usual, ordered at 1pm, came next day, last pieces to finish of my bike build and have not been let down in the slightest! Top quality components which after a lot of abuse, are still running true :)
