Really reduces clutter on the handlebar and great unit with all-in-one capability. My road bike also has all-in-one shifter / brakes and I really appreciate the ease of use. The shifter is super smooth, effortless, and precise with single gear or multiple gear shifts in one motion. I use them with mechanical disc brakes for a super combination.
