One important thing. The shifters that arrived are not as pictured. The picture is of the old indexed lever shifters that came on mountain bikes in the early 90s. The shifters that arrived were a brand new shimano model that is sort of a modern version. They are a tad bulkier than what is pictured, but they do have a nice little sort of rapidfire upshift feature. So, they're a little bigger, but sort of better than what is pictured.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
