    old groupset compatibility question

    Yesterday I was assessing the bike graveyard in the garage and noticed that I have a bike with shimano Exage 200CX drive train but no shifters. I tried to find some info on the exage, and apparently it is 7 speed and indexed. I also have a pair of sora 3x8 brifters.

    Is there any chance that these will work together? if it might, what do I do for a back wheel? do they make 7 speed casettes, or do I have to find something with a 7 speed freewheel?

    I'd think you'd want 8 speed. The RD has the correct cable pull ratio for indexing and the shifter, being 8-speed, will be indexed to the spacing on an 8-speed cassette.

    cool! I was hoping to scoop up a set of those clearance neuvation wheels for this build, and i think I've got a spare 8sp cassette laying around.

    Thanks!
