The only real issue I have with this, is that the ferrel into which the shift cable housing must be inserted does not fit Shimano index shift cable housing. You have to shave off some of the plastic covering to enable the housing to bottom out in the ferrel. Maybe not a big deal, but it is annoying. Shimano cable housing comes with a variety of end fittings, one of which will fit into the shift lever ferrel, but it won't bottom out. Using that will eventually make one unhappy.
I would give this four and a half stars, but that doesn't seem to be an option.
