Is a 9-speed Alivio rear shifter compatible with a 9-speed Deore rear derailleur?

1 Answer 1



As a rule, you can take any 7, 8, or 9 speed Shimano rear derailleur and use it with a 7, 8, or 9 speed Shimano rear shifter. It is when you venture to 10-speed and beyond that things get a little more complicated.
