Hey, I've been looking all over the web to find the model numbers for LX and XT in 99. If I'm corect I think the XT was M750? but no idea about LX? If anyone can help that would be spot on. Cheers Rob 8) 8)

http://mombat.org/Shimano.htm covers XT, swap M7xx for M5xx for the LX numbers, perhaps?

No, this isn't true for LX at all actually, and never has been. e.g., 1997/98 chainsets were FC-M739 and FC-M569. In 1999 they were FC-M750 and FC-M570 - the numbers being 5 and 7 swapped around was just a coincidence applying to that period only, although it perhaps makes it easier to remember them. I haven't got a list of 1999 LX Mega 9 numbers, but they were basically in the M57x series. So that means some LX numbers actually went backwards, such as V-brakes from BR-M600 to BR-M570.
