Rear Derailleur for Megarange

I have a rear set of 12-34 and a front of 52-40. This is for an old Schwinn Voyageur 11.8. Shimano has a Tourney Megarange derailleur for a whopping 15 bucks. Any others I could use?

Spend $3 more for a Deore: http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...%20Derailleurs

There's shipping though, so probably want to get other stuff, too, to make it worth it.

Just for the record, I recently used 14-34 Megarange freewheels on two different bikes, one with an old Shimano Light Action derailleur, and the other with an older Shimano Eagle II derailleur. Both work fine, even in the big ring up front (52t).

most shimano mountain derailers will work, but for my money, nothing less than deore is really worth it. Deore components are a good value, and plenty durable
