Post subject:  9 speed stuff - SORTED, THANKS

So building a bike for my daughter, and going to put a 9 speed on the back. So I'm after a nice 9 speed rear derailleur, cassette and separate shifter unit. For pref I'd like a min of STX (or equiv SRAM) but I'm also on a budget (aren't we all) - so although I'm being as picky as I can be (it's for my girl after all!) - I do know there are limits!

What you got? :)

Cheerio and thanks,
Paul.

wheres your line on aesthetics? Can get better worn kit or like new basic kit for similar money.

Shifter and mech shouldn't be a problem, loads of spare cassettes too (most are 8 speed but there are a few 9's in there last time I checked). If you are happy with the lived-in look it widens the options a bit.

Cheers

Hmmm - trying to get a nice balance. It's her first 26" wheel bike so I don't want tatty and also trying to get the best I can get for a budget. Managed to get a nice aet of XT V's in near nos for 28 quid (both ends) on here and a v. nice black XT hollowtech crank and BB on ebay for 30 quid (with stripped drive side pedal thread - but fixed that easily enough). So something in the STX or LX range - partly because of the black. Theme of the build is primarily satin black with purple anno... if that helps :D

I recently bought a brand new shimano altus M2000 rear mech and matching shifter from my LBS, I can't remember exactly but they were no more than 30 quid for both. might be worth looking at? depends what your budget is I imagine.

Black deore mech! Black!

Cassette is silver though

<pouts lip shuffles feet>

It wasn't gonna be a lot of money either...

Sounds good :) One last question though (not wanting to go all Columbo) are there any limitations for the deore in terms of what shifter unit I need? Thinking maybe cable pull or something? I'm lost once it's more modern than 1997

Front shifting is the only part you need to carefully match. Rears can be mixed and matched almost all the way to ten speed.

*one of these mechs is on my neighbours 7spd Carerra to replace that god awful Tourney thing.

Thanks. I'm avoiding a front shifter for now as I think it will just confuse her!

Cool though - let me know payment details and the rear mech / cassette would be brilliant, 6thanks.

Just need a shifter unit now! Anyone? (Did you say that you had some Rick?)

Awesome thanks - looking for STX / XT shifter ideally - rear mech's are always pricey so was happier to compromise there :) (That's why I always used to run an LX (RD-M567) back in the day :) )

Are you going with a double or triple 9 speed ?

I’ve got a pair of XT M750 shifters that Work as expected. They are missing the indicator windows though. £10 plus post if you want them.

Sorry both - complete forgot to update the post to say that this is sorted now (apart from my hunt for a purple/silver chain :D) :) Thanks anyway!
