    pretty much any shimano derailleur will work, depending on the cage length of the exage, I'd grab a 105 or deore, great bang for the buck & equivalent in current component line.

    thank you all for you help.

    I have a long cage derailleur. In my local Craigslist I found a long cage Ultegra 6700 Derailluer for about $40, it looks in great condition.

    Why not stay with the same derailleur? I couldn't find your exact derailleur, but I'm guessing it's this one with a different top plate. http://cgi.ebay.com/SHIMANO-EXAGE-50...item230f77b296 The price looks right also.
