Deore 10 speed shifter

Hi all,

Are there any upgrades I can do as far as changing the shifter? Maybe an XT for a better feel?

yes, but what don't you like about the Deore shifters, XTR is even better

Waste of money, IMO.

If you are experiencing anything short of great shifting, it is almost certainly something other than the shifter model.

The shifter either works or it doesn't. Not worth an upgrade.

This is America, do what you wanna do. Splurge on that XT grouppo and upgrade to your hearts content.

I built a bike up with a 10 speed Deore earlier this year and it's been fine. Just waiting on my patriotism swell up and explode.
