    You may certainly be correct. The first Deore reference I remember was with the LX on my mountain bike's crank arm. It's a '98 Trek 7000ZX I bought new and has a range of parts from STX to XT.

    etherhuffer, The 7S hubs could be a test of patience to find. I suggest an 8S hub with a 4.5 mm spacer to mount a 7S cassette.

    Presently I have a STX 7S hub on my '96 Cannondale T700 beater...

    I did notice the crank arm, I had an uncle that could've benefited from a similar modification. Clydesdale is the term I've associated the most for +200 lb. men.

    Back on topic, I like the color,...

    The other factor to consider is the pull ratio of the RD. Will it be compatible with another brand's shifter? I doubt it.

    My guess is the Jamis' forks have some device to prevent the axle being pulled from the fork under braking. It maybe a shroud, an extra aggressive set of "lawyer's lips" or some other device. ...

    There is, more often than not, a bit of a fudge factor regarding maximum cassette cog size and Shimano is conservative with their recommendations. Oddly the RD-6500-GS has a -1T capacity compared to...
