Finally got the used SATO's installed on my bike yesterday.
WOW..... amazing the difference. Cleaner shifting, better positioning, the rigid mouting lets you 'feel' the bike/road better, and the weight loss from the stockers was significant. Between the PAZZO levers and the SATO's, the 9'er feels like a new bike.
My question is this...... I paid $350 USED for the SATO's in mint condition....... if these sets are around $300, I'd be tempted to just save a little more and get the real thing or hold out with cash in hand to jump on another used set.....
I know that with the SATO's.....if I have a get off..... I can order more parts and have the rearset's back in service quickly.
