What kind of Mountain bike gear shifters do I need to use? I am thinking about building my self a nice little Mountain bike some time this year. I have most of the parts but I am lost on the gear shifters I need to use. It will have a 9 speed rear cassette on the back and a three chain ring on the front. I would like to keep it as cheap as I could but heck if I have to spend a little more than I would like to then I will. I have seen them from about 10.00 and up. I have been told it would be better built if I use a 8 speed rear if thats all it can handle then I want build one. My 9 speed cassette has 11-34 good range and the front is 22,32,44t chain ring set so if anyone knows what will work with it let me know thanks.
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.
