just bought a full rear system ,shifter,mech cassette and chain for just over a tenner,its the x-7 [8 speed]and i think it dates from around '04
Any known issues ,set-up difficulties,longevity,ie is it compatible with shimano cassettes/chains ,when i need to change them
peed'off i sold those Deore thumbies ,so im hoping this will fill in till something better comes along
Many thanks :D

I run modern Sram X9 & X7, you can use shimano cassettes & chains (or any other brand) the only thing you have to have Sram is the shifters.

I'm running XT cassetttes, a Sram PC 971 chain & KMC SL chain. The KMC chain seems to shift better than Sram or Shimano chains.
