Trying to put together a project with full Shimano 1991 DX stuff:

This website http://www.fa-technik.adfc.de/Hersteller/Shimano/Gruppen.html#91 indentifies two types of shifters - MT62 and M070/M071 as a combo. Is the MT62 a thumb and the other two a combo brake/push push under the bar?

Also, I have a pair of 32 hole DX hubs, front is almost brand new and rear is new that I wondering if anyone has a 36 hole set that are as close to NOS as possible that I could trade?

Yeah the MT62 is thumbies, and the other is the combo shifters. In '91 it was the push-push style (I'm not a fan of that style).

Any need for a front der? I have a top pull '93 DX that has about 10 miles of use on it.

I thought so, thanks for the infomation. I like the thumb better than push-push as well.
The later DX shifters are standard rapidfire plus, I like them. I have a set of those and they work well.

I know I have a set of XT thumbies to get rid of (I'm a suntour thumbie whore, not a shimano thumbie whore), but not sure about DX's. Think i got rid of my last pair of those last year. I also have a few DX derailleurs still and some cranks.

My Mt62 are on UK ebay item 7152664850, not quite NOS due to slight rust bubbling on the clamps, but these could be repainted I guess. I'll ship anywhere at cost.
