    As mtnbiker72 said. The Sram MRX for Shimano rear derailleurs.

    But you can also add to the mix the following

    Shimano Revoshift (Shimano Rear derailleurs) or the Sram 3.0 ESP if running a Sram rear derailleur.

    ok thanks. i just bought a Sram 3.0 (not comp) and it was the worst chinese cheap plastic rubbish that i ever had the displeasure to lose my temper with. Infact it broke before i even got it on the handle bar. i ope the MRX has a smoother gear change and feel?

    Cheers

    If your running 7 speed, you can use a 8 speed shifter (just lock out the last shift)...this makes the MUCH nicer SRAM Attack shifter available to you

    6 speed is different spacing so no, it will not work. 7 and 8 speed spacing are almost identical so that is why you can use a 8 speed shifter on a 7 speed cassette.

    arh, ok. i'm trying to get hold of a 7 speed freewheel at present as a replacement for my 6 speed, but only if i could get an 11 cog sprocket. but it seems i cannot as freewheels do not go down to this size. I have no room for an 8 speed

    Do you think this 7 speed freewheel would work with the 8 speed SRAM Attack shifter?......

    Well how about that...it should. DNP is a Chinese company that makes the Nashbar house brand cassettes. They don't shift as smooth as Shimano but they work OK.

    thanks, you've been helpful. when you say 'lock out the last gear shift', how is this done?

    Using the "H" limit screw to keep the shifter from shifting into the "lowest" gear. This makes the numbers slightly off (2-8 will be used) but otherwise works perfect.

    But do you have a freewheel or cassette hub. They are not the same.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    thanks for your concern, it's a freewheel, that is why i've found it difficult finding an 11 cog set, they are pretty hard to find
