anyone know of any reviews on the new alivio 9 speed gears ? was asking about simano deore slx shifters a while back but just found out shimano now do alivio 9 speed.on my old mtb which i now use for commute to work i have the alivio 8 speed which have been brill in the 5 years and 5000 miles of use,where the deore on my weekend mtb need replacing, sloppy shifting. is it worth a punt on the cheaper alivio shifters?
