This has probably been asked before, but I didn't see an obvious thread in my quick look through...
I have a mountain bike set up with a Shimano 8 speed grupo. I need to replace the rear derailer. Can I buy the current XTR rear (RD-M952) and get it to work with 8 speed shifters and cassette? I'd like to do this in the interest of saving some cash. If not, what do I NEED to replace. Thanks in advance for the help.
