Which derailleur should I use with a Shimano 7 speed freewheel 14-34T megarange in order to prevent the derailleur from rubbing the cassette in 2nd.

    I've got a Tourney Megarange on mine and it works well enough.

This one.

8 speed mega range

Or this one. Or any 7 or 8 speed Mega Range rear derailleur from Shimano.

7 speed Mega range

This issue can also be an adjustment of the B tension screw on your existing derailleur.

B tension Screw

B tension adjustment gap

  • I think the one other variable typical on those 7 speed bikes is whether they have a mech hanger. If they don't I believe you can get a variation on the Tourney that was the correct mount. May 15, 2012 at 7:34
  • That is true. But if your frame doesn't have a rear derailleur hanger, then you really should be looking for a new bike, just for quality reasons.
