    Just get an LX anywhere or even an XT if the price is right. Never mind if it says "nine speed", it'll work just fine with eight. You'd probably be fine with a Deore too.

    You don't want the upside-down "rapid rise" low-normal type, though.

    That means you want a 750 series and not a 760 series derailleur.

    That means you want a 750 series and not a 760 series derailleur. You should be able to find an XT 750 series long cage on ebay for around $40.
