    Killer V 900 components

    I have an old (but trusty) Cannondale Killer V 900, circa about 1995.

    A while ago, most of the components were stolen, including front & rear derailleurs.

    I'm looking to replace the whole LX group set, but I don't know the difference, particularly with the front derailleur types (top swing type or bottom bracket type) I think I need an SGS rear derailleur.
    Will the current V brakes fit on to the posts from the old cantilevers ??

    If any one can let me know the specs on what I need, I would be very grateful

    None of the local bike shops are much help- they just want to sell me a new bike..!


    thanks in advance

    I believe the front derailer is a bottom pull/bottom swing, and a long cage on the rear. Cantilever brakes are still on the market and slightly improved since your V900 came out, the pad adjustment is the same as a V-brake.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
