Shimano XT jockey wheels
#1
I need to replace the jockeys wheel and wondered if there are any other makes which work or last better.

KCNC Jockey wheels. They're very pretty too and come in anodized red, so will make you faster too.

Nice, but expensive. BBB ones are good too and only 10 quid for the pair.

I have some, they are red (where anodizing hasnt worn off), 1g lighter than stock XT, made me a lot quicker although I had to faff with rear shock pressure to take into account the weight balance shift.

That area is unsprung though. what i did was to adjust my limit screws, as the momentum of the mech is reduced. Only took a couple of hours but what a difference!
Keep it foolish...

Mech moves up and down with the rear suspension....dont start me on how much they screwed up the gear change by there being 2g less weight moving back and forth in the mech cage, chain tension was shot!

Did you need to adjust tyre pressure to compensate for the altered shift curve too? Big Grin

PS: "red where anodizing hasnt worn off" - guess the main wheel areas are fine, but what colour have the teeth worn to?

That logic means that you & your lid are unsprung weight Undecided
You sure you're not in the Southern hemisphere Big Grin

I had a pair of Token carbon/ceramic jockeys in the old XTR mech. Weight advantage was massive & the in increase in acceleration was gob smacking.  Unfortunately they weren't red so all benefit was lost due to the air resistance of the weave Sad
