Solid and inexpensive
I bought this derailleur along with the Claris front derailleur and STI shifters to upgrade an old Exage kit on an old Giant Kronos that had downtube shifters and a 7 speed Biopace setup. I needed a backup bike that was rideable in my hilly neck of the woods. Unfortunately, the 53/42 Biopace crankset didn't have enough low end to get me up the steep grades in my area. So after replacing the bottom bracket and the crankset to a Shimano 50/34 compact setup, I decided to also update the derailleurs and shifters (and bars and stem...). I had an extra set of wheels laying around, so I cold set the rear triangle to 130mm and put a cheap $22 11-28 cassette on there to give me all 8 gears rather than the seven I was getting prior, in addition to a lower climbing gear.

What I ended up with is a surprisingly smooth shifting setup for the money. It certainly shifts much smoother than my wife's vintage Sora 8 speed gear on her 2009 Jamis Ventura Sport, with the advantage of having the nice double lever setup rather than the thumb downshifter as on the earlier STI shifters. Yeah, it's a tad heavier than the higher-end Shimano stuff and has fewer gears; but it's cheap and rock solid.

Hi,
Wondering if this will fit as a replacement for an old 8 speed Sora 3300 rear derailleur on a triple chain ring (50-39-30), 8 speed cassette (12-28) road bike.
Also is this the SS or GS?
Thanks!
