Will this front derailleur work??

I dont know if im missing something but im wondering if this will working my my bike

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...9921&rd=1&rd=1

i have a top pull frame with a 31.8 bracket and shimano ST-EF29 shifters...the only thing im worried about is im on a 7 speed setup...and all the derailleurs i look at just say 9 speed compatible...Also its said this derailluer was designed for 9 speeds with super thin chains...and I think my chain is normal...

Maybe someone can give me a link to a good derailluer for my setup?

It says it's missing a cable anchor bolt; if you have an old derailleur, you can probably just swap it out.

One other concern is that this derailleur is probably supposed to work with 44-48 tooth maximum chainrings. If you're running a smaller or larger, you'll still be able to use it, but it won't be as crisp as it could be.
