Shimano Derailleur Gradings

In the intro it talks about how there's not a huge difference between alivio and deore...but there's a big difference between those and lx and xt. Where do deore xts play into this?

I don't think Hone/Saint can be grouped with XTR, etc. becuase they're FR/DH components. The can be compared however....

Actually not to but the Hone 3-ring is comparable to LX, while the Hone 2-ring is comparable to XT. They are 2 differently built cranksets besides the # of chainrings.

2 ring has an XT or Saint spindle, Saint Pedal inserts, XT rings

3 ring has an LX spindle, no inserts

atlus and acera are gone?

there are also countless cheapies that involve letters and numbers EZ50 shifters, CO50 RD, etc.

wally mart bikes come with "shimano" tourney level which costs about $20 retail for the entire drivetrain.
