    I would go with an older derailleur from ebay, I have a 10 speed derailleur on a 9 speed chain that works but is finicky (if not perfectly set up chain rubs). I switched it out with a 9 speed der. and its a pretty substantial difference (surprisingly, because the chain widths are not all that different). The 6,7, and 8 speed chains, are in turn wider than the 9 speeds, so find an older derail is my advice.

    I've got a Veloce braze-on 8spd FD on there right now. 7 views, 0 watchers.

    Trouble is a lot of sellers try to offload the set together so it ends up pricier.
