Shimano Deore M592-SGS 9-Speed Long Cage Shadow Rear Derailleur

asked by: A Visitor
Does this work with 8 speed cassettes?
answered by: lindst20@msu.edu
Not just "technically", but certainly. 8 speed and 9 speed cassettes are the same width, so there will be no difference in the limit screws. The cable actuation ratio is the same, so there is absolutely no difference in how the derailleur will shift as long as a properly indexed 9 speed shifter (or friction shifter) is used. 5-6-7-8-9 speed chains are alll the same size on the "inside", so there is no issue with the inside of the chain. The only possible point of conflict is that the pulley cages may be too small to fit an 8 speed chain.

Review of the Shimano Deore M592-SGS 9-Speed Long Cage Shadow Rear Derailleur:
Sure looks better in the pictures it is kinda cheap looking, the cage is stamped form sheet metal.

Seems to shift nice and smooth and tucks in close to the spokes to avoid hitting rocks etc

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.

Review of the Shimano Deore M592-SGS 9-Speed Long Cage Shadow Rear Derailleur:
Used to replace an 8 speed RD on a 90s mountain bike. I had to get a 9 speed chain to avoid rubbing on the cage.

Yes, I would recomend this to a friend.
