Finally swapped the last of my old parts off of my bike today.
My 15year old shimano front mech (derailleur) and shifters were starting to play up at times (generally when I really needed them to work, mid climb for instance).
So enter a pair of shimano xt m770 shifters and an xt front mech. This means I now have the dual action shifters which I’m quite excited about trying and the shifting seems more positive and solid compared to my previous 15year old LX units.
Gave them a quick setup this evening and all seems to be working correctly.
In seperate news (what with this being the 1st of April) in March I managed to cover 181miles so a nice improvement over the last 2 months.
