Hi guys.

My lad broke his 8 speed rear derailleur.

Shimano Tourney TX35 on ebay is being advertised as both 6,7 speed and 6,7,8 speed with some sellers.
All major retailers are describing it as 6,7 speed only.
I ask because 8 speed derailleurs are double the price of 6,7 speed ones and if i can get away with using it, why not?

Will TX35 work as 8 speed derailleur?

Thanks.
