    Putting new derailer on Nishiki, need help!

    I am putting a new rear derailer on my 2010 Nishiki Colorado. The bike originally came with a sram X4 (7 speed rear). I found a great deal on a 7 speed Shimano. I have 2 questions... 1-does the Nishiki frame come with a derailer hanger, or no hanger? 2- Will the Shimano work with a Sram x4 shifter?

    Thanks for the help!

    1) yes,

    2) no

    You'll need to either change the rear shifter pod, or get another SRAM derailleur, as the two systems use different cable-pull ratios.

    *edit*

    I should add, that all 7/8/9 speed derailleurs will also work with a 7 speed shift pod (within the respective brand).
