    Shimano XTR ST-M965

    What do you you guys think about these shifters? They are on sale for around $190. The XTR SL-M970 are also on sale, which ones would you guys get? THanks.

    For flexibility, I would choose the single shifter levers.

    Both work fine and feel very natural to me, but if you compete in races, then go for the system that doesn't limit your choice of brakes.

    It is easier and faster to bolt on another set of brakes (front and rear don't have to match either) than it is to replace a hose and bleed the system in the event that you do suffer a ruptured brake line.
