Shimano SL-M310 Acera Rapid Fire


$20.99 Released January, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Very obvious clicking sounds when changing gears adds assurance of use. Packaged with all necessary cabling, housing, and ends. Very affordable upgrade or "repair" part for mountain bikes.

The Cons:Included directions are not very clear unless the user is experienced with bike maintenance. May require considerable adjustment to align indexing properly.

 Shimano's SL-M310 is an entry-level shifter, and comes in both front and rear versions (i.e. left- and right-side of the handlebars, for front and rear derailleurs). The front version shifts between three crankset cogs, and the rear between 7 speeds on the cassette.
