    no such thing as a 7 speed deraiileur. basically any derailleur for road bikes would work ,i.e. short or medium cage version. You can get a Sora one for little over a tenner.
  • arr right thanks i was confused by them saying 8-9 or 10 as my bike has a 7 cassete and is a 14speed

    Just to clarify also ( if you are upgrading your bike)- it will be fine to use a 9/10 speed chain or 9/10 chainset on your bike too without changing the cassette or shifters.
