You know what they say, ignorance is bliss that was me till a few months ago and since finding this forum I now find myself in the category of a little knowledge is dangerous
Decided to build my Orange P7 1995 with era correct ish kit, to me that means from the 1990's and what I a) like the look of b) what will technically work together c) what I can get hold of
Decided to go 8 speed, have found some shimano XTR V Brakes and levers M950 so then found some XT ST M008 shifters and now the queries start
I will be only using Shimano XTR or XT
Can I use any 8 speed cassette? (will these fit on all shimano XT/XTR free wheels from 1995-1999)
Can I use any front chain rings M900 through to say M952?
I want to avoid rapid rise but other than this can I use any M900 through to M952 derailleur?
Lots of questions I know but I don't want to make expensive mistakes
Thanks in advance for those with knowledge far superior to mine
