I have a 2011 Specialized Camber 29er, which came equipped with Shimano Alivio SL-M430 9-speed shifters. I was thinking about swapping the Alivio shifters out with a 3 year old set of Shimano XT SL-M770 shifters that are on my old mountain bike. I am a little reluctant to do this because the XT shifters require more finger or thumb force to change gears than all of the other Shimano Shifters Iíve used over the years. Could this extra be attributed to friction in the shifting cables or are the SL-M770 shifters harder to shift than other Shimano shifter?
