Broken Suntour Mountech rear Derailluer
#1
Hello, all I have a 210 Miyata that I bought today for $100. Not sure whether it was a good deal or not as I am new to bicycling. While I was bicycling today I was riding up a little hill and tried to shift the rear gear my rear derailleur broke. I was wondering if anyone could tell me where I could order a new one online, or if their are better replacement derailleurs for this bike since I have heard these suntour mountechs are self-destruct able. ::: As a side note I was wondering if anyone also knows where I can get 27 1 1/4 wheels to replace the current wheels. They are in alright shape but I can see possible problems in the near future. ::: Thanks again! PS: this is what the derailleur looks like/info http://www.disraeligears.co.uk/Site/...284900%29.html

If the gears are non-indexing then any make of dérailleur should do.
As long as you have 8 rear gears or less then any current 8 speed dérailleur should work.
Depending on whether you have a double or triple chainset will determine if you require a short or long cage type?

(P.S. Your link to disraeligears wouldn't work for me.)

You should be fine with any standard long cage derailleur. It looks like this is a long cage even though you only have two chainrings up front.

27" wheels are readily available from many places.
