This depens on what kind of derailer you have to begin with . As long as it has the range you will be okay if you adjust it the right way. I put a mega low range sprocket on my 7 gear cassete( changed from 28 tooth to 32 tooth) and did not have to change my derailer,however I had to adjust it properly. If your original cassete is an 8 gear to begin with, you dont need to buy a new derailer. I also have an 8 gear cassete with mega low on it. I do not see any significant diference between my 7 gear and 8 gear mega range derailers . All you have to do is make the nessesary adjustments.:-/
