I am replacing a broken Shimano RD-2200, and trying to find the right part. How do I determine compatability? The largest sprocket is 26 tooth, and the cassette is 8 speed. Will anything by Shimano for an 8 speed work? Or do I need to get more specific?

Generally, number of speeds and tooth range -- difference between teeth on largest cog and smallest, front + rear. –  Daniel R Hicks Oct 23 '13 at 11:57

Anything from Shimano with 8 speeds should work. The problems can only start when your cassete's biggest sprocket is too big (you are well under limit).
