yeah yeah, sram sram sram...I am sticking with shimano for this little fix. I had an xt, upgraded from an lx, but I did it before I was skilled in telling the difference. This is why I am asking. I guess I will just get the lx, why couldn't they make those in black instead of that stupid blue/gray color.
yeah, I have the deore, they came with the bike. I was thinking about upgrading, but I wanted to stick with a plastic/resin/whatever body just because I slammed my thumb into a metal one and split my nail open and decided I didn't like metal bodied shifters. The reason I say this of course is that I am pretty sure anything above deore is metal. Yeah, I'm really thinking lx though, I'm trying to save some money so I can afford another bike, xt would just be a waste.

Me neither. Xt...might last longer and might be lighter, but isn't worth the money in my world. Lx was great value. If I ever go shimano I would still use that level. Weight isn't much of a concern for me,
I like sram, but its an expensive switch (1 of my 3 bikes is sram, 1 is 2002 shimano and 1 is ss..)
thanks for the correction about the shifters raiyn, and thanks for finding a silver lx...that's freakin' awesome. I am going to check what my lbs has in stock today before I order anything offline though. Thanks to everyone else as well, for the replies.
