I am helping a friend adding STI 8 speed to his old bike. I can get 8 speed RSX STI and wondered what derailers I can mate it to. I looked at the prices of rear and front derailers and noticed mtb. equipment prices are much lower. Could I mate the shifters to a deore 8/9 speed rear derailer sold on Nashbar http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...t%3A%20Rear%20
What about the front? Anyone have an idea. He is not looking for the cutting edge or super high performance. I have a chain casette and rear wheel for 8 speed he can use.
