I'm retro-fitting an old mtb bike for touring. Will the following combination work? '91 ultegra 600 rd, 8sp XT cassette and XT 8sp thumbshifters. I'm mostly wondering if the '91 vintage 600 rd will do 8sp? Any thoughts?? thanks

...it even works with 9. Just don't try and use 8 speed DA shifters with it.

.....it may not shift a large cog bigger than a 30.I think large cog spec wat about 28 and that is usually somewhat conservative.

thanks for the quick response. I think the largest cog is a 28 tooth.
