    8 spd derailleurs on a 7spd?

    i need to replace my girlfriends rear der, but she has a 7spd freewheel. all i can find is bottom of the barrel 5 dollar derailleurs, which id rather not deal with. id be fine with a deore or similar rd, but everything is for 8 or 9 speeds.. it seems odd that they're rated for speeds anyway, that should be part of the shifter itself right?

    can i go ahead and use the 8spd RD's on her 7spd freewheel?
