Broke my Shifter - Should I upgrade?
I fell this weekend and broke the shifter on a bike I've had about a month. Its a Deore shifter and I have deore front and XT rear derailleurs. If I replace it with an XT will I notice much performance difference, or is weight the primary difference between deore and XT shifters? Is it worth $45 or so for the XT vs $15 or so to replace it with a new deore? Should I replace both my shifters or would an XT shifter be pointless with a deore front derailleur?
