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!
