    Need help please

    I just purchased a 1997 Raleigh F500 police bike. The bike has STX-RC group components and I want to upgrade but I don't know what will fit. I don't have unlimited funds so I don't need the best Shimano has to offer. Can any one tell me what is a compatible upgrade? This has an 8 gear cog and 3 chain rings.
    Thanks

    You can use any 9 speed drive train. The deore level components are good value,but why do you need to upgrade?

    upgrade

    The stx-tx components are old and finding replacement parts is difficult. I can no longer find the rapidfire shifters.

    The alvio 8 speeds are still available. But I don't know what you're trying to achieve: is it to fix broken components or just to "upgrade"? What's wrong with the shifters? If you have a particular problem try posting in the drivetrain forum.
