2010 Shimano Deore

We’ve just unpacked a big box of silver boxes containing the 2010 Deore groupset. Initial impressions are very good – especially for an ‘entry level’ mountain bike groupset. More when we’ve had a chance to play with it…

The smart new Deore chainset. Nice muscley flare to it.

Top swing and bottom swing mechs.

Centrelock hubs

Shadow (far) and normal (near) rear mechs. We love the sculptiness of it all

Side by side - Shadow on the left, normal on the right.

Yep, you can still get Shimano V-Brakes. Yay!

New 2010 Deore shifters still get two-way shifting - (push the finger lever in either direction) - which is a great thing.

A box of goodies. Some days it's great when the doorbell rings.

Decent V-brake levers for retro, simple or cheaper bikes.

The hydraulic brakes come pre-bled and ready to fit.

The Deore 2010 hydraulic lever. Very stealthy, though it lacks the adjustability of other models (and no, you can't flip-flop them)
