someone just gave me a 2008 specialized hardrock a1 xc. i was wondering what kinda of Deore derailleurs w compatible quick shifter would be good for the bike. my budget is preferably under $150. any suggestions?

does the bike need a new derailuer? is the one on it broken? if the bike has shimano on it now a Deore should be compatible.

yea, they have shimano right now...but i was wondering what was a good deore derailleur, that isn't too pricy, to switch them

Deore is a Shimano MTB group. There used to be just Deore and then Deore LX and Deore XT but I believe it's now SLX and Deore XT. Regardless, any Shimano MTB derailler from Acera on up with shift just fine. As you spend more money, they get lighter and a little more precise. For rear deraillers, you can spend as little as $20 for Acera to over $200 for XTR. Fronts are a little cheaper.
However, you should probably first answer why you want to replace the derailler(s).
