    I'm a newbie to this group and would like some help with a small problem. I have a Shimano STX rear
    derailleur from a 15 speed MTB, question is a) will it work on a 21 speed MTB? and b) it has a short
    connection to the frame on the original bike where the 21 speed has a long one, will this make any
    difference? Apologies for lack of technical terms.

  2. It should work. They all have the same pull and the same throw. I don't think the length of
    connection will make a difference.
