I have an 05 Specialized Epic Disc which has,
front deraileur: Shimano LX
rear deraileur: Shimano XT
disc brakes: Avid mechanical cable
shifters: Shimano LX
Brake levers: Avid
My only gripe is that I have a smallish hand and short thumb. I find that chaging to the highest gear on front, or lowest on rear to be hit and miss affair. I often do not push with my thumb hard / far enough.
For above reason, amongst others, I have a desire to upgrde the shifters and really like the idea of Shimano's dual control. I am assuming one of the Shimano XT or XTR
would be ideal. The question is;
-Which model exactly should I start shopping for - that will work with all
my other components? I would probably stay with XT/XTR for the bling factor.
