I mean all x9 speeds are compatible. PC59 can rust, 69 and above are plated. I run weight weenie PC89R, labicicletta has them for 20 USD. Shim DA seems to shift better IMHO

Thank you!! I was thinking the 69, but in searching catalogs and net saw a model that was more expensive, possibly might work better, I need to order some stuff like a cassette and (ugh) a mirror that I only see CC carrying these days. CC it is unless I can find the mirror elsewhere that has the chain and cassette.

PC99 suppose to last much longer, and 89 is 1/2oz lighter.
longivity shouldn't be a problem on road, esp if you use wet lube.

Try price matching most web retailers do match prices good luck
