New shifters for deore xt x7 delrailer

I have a mountain bike with a deore xt derailer (8 in rear, 3 in front). the rapid shifters (which are integrated with breaks) are shot. These are ''X7'' parts that are CIRCA 1994. What shifters can I use to replace them? I am not looking for anything fancy since I only cruise around on roads.

Shimano make an "EZ fire" which is an integrated shifter/brake lever combination and cheaper than buying seperate shifters and levers.

Ive a new rear deore unit cable and housing etc. where does the cable secure in the shifter unit? I can see a small metal arch but cant figure where the end of the cable actually fixes


Not a great picture but if you follow the arched groove back from the cable-housing guide it leads to a little hole. THAT is where you stick the cut end of the cable.

How do I replace rear shifter cable in shifter lever? Older Shimano Deore XT


ok this is a little hard to explain in words but the important thing is to make sure the chain is on the biggest cog, pull the cable through the deralier tight and fasten. don't pull it too tight however. you may need to fine tune using the h/l screws but if it was in tune before then it shouldn't need too much adjustment.

Deore front derailer cable stay hex nut access


Try unhooking the chain from the ring and pulling the derailleur out far eough to get at the bolt. Make sure your limit screws are adjusted for the travel yuou want and take up the slack. You can use the cable adjuster on the shifter to tighten it or loosen it as necessary. Make sure the adjuster has enough to go in the direction you need. I don't know which model Diore you are talking about so this is the best advice I can give you.

8speed lx shifter to xt shifter


It depends.. Shifter cables are standard and the same one would work for both LX and XT shifters. If the old cable is full of grime etc, it is a good idea to run new cables - it will give you a smooth easy shift.

I am sure if you check www.shimano.com you will find the manual for your model of shifter. Replacing cables is pretty easy.
