Deore M511 vs XT M751 Shifters

Postby aba2005 » Sat Jul 14, 2007 13:45 pm

Is there any differences between these shifters? I've got both and I don't really want to change to the XT shifters if they aren't better. I can't see any differences from what I have read.

Thanks for your help.

XT is lighter, lasts longer and has a more postive 'feel' - less clunky.

Ok cool its just they seemed to have the same features and as the M751 is the old XT (aren't they on M770 now?) i Thought maybe the features had trickled down.

Thanks.
