I just realized the stock Shimano Deore rear deraileur on my 05 Rockhopper sucks. I'm a bit past the point of converting everything into a 9 speed as i have new Sram Attack 8 speed shifters and a few sets of wheels with 8 speed cassettes.
All reviews point me towards a Sram X9, but nobody ever mentions whether they use it for a 8 speed or 9 speed. I just want to make sure it is compatible.
btw, the Attack shifters are +1 compared to the stock Deore stuff... I can only imagine what new deraileurs can do. Also, is it worth getting matching fronts?
Thanks in advanced.
