    Need front derailleur & rear suggestions for my old Lynsky mountain bike

    There are so many choices that I feel like a 5 year old kid in a candy store

    Just upgraded my ~ 25 year old titanium 26er to 9 speed from 7 and also put on a 26-36-48 crank set. My ancient Deore XT front derailleur is in need of replacement but there are so many choices.

    I'm looking for a good modest priced Shimano deraiileur that fits a 31.8 seat tube and uses a down pull for actuation.

    While we're at it I'd love to hear recommendations for a rear derailleur replacement for the also ancient Deore LX bearing in mind I'm running a 9 speed cassette.

    Thanks for any informed replies.
