Guys, I need help here...
My trusty Bear Valley SE is on her last legs and need the full monty makeover. So, I went and bought a used MTB to use in the interim... Being an idiot I didn't really look at at what I'd bought other than it it had an aluminium frame..(better than steel??). So got it home and everything is crap on the bike other than the frame. Not being one to count my losses and go buy a decent bike I pressed on. The problem is, to buy old school 3 x 7 derailleurs is expensive, especially her in Australia. I have a pair of ST-M095 shifter combos but need the front and rear mechs.

My question is: is there a cheaper modern alternative to suit these shifters, maybe Altus or Alivio?

Yes, I am foolish but just love to bring things back from the dead!!! I have to say that my 91 Bear Valley is awesome even with a creaky bottom bracket...

Thanks Mark - Perth Australia

Any more modern Shimano derailleur will work, provided not 10 speed (or SRAM).
