Deraileur pulleys

Did a search for this but couldn't find anything on the forum, so here goes...

 

Need to replace the deraileur pulleys on my XT deraileur - what to buy? I know KCNC are favorites. Are they that good or will BBB/Shimano do the same job?

I changed back from KCNC to Shimano. Just because I was tired of the bling. IF you can find XT ones you will see that the KCNC are cheaper. XTR ones costs almost the same as a complete new XT derailleur. If you go for BBB, just make sure you get the 11 tooth ones. The packages are not marked too clearly.

 

 

 

BTW, you can buy my silver KCNC ones for R150 (postage includded). Still looks new and runs perfectly.

how does the price differ between Shimano/bbb/KCNC?

Do u have to replace it with the same 11t or can go to to 10 teeth on the pulleys?

well our LBS didn't stock the xtr ones so i was forced to go for the BBB which was the only ones they had.

I think I will have a look at my LBS over lunch and see what the prices are. Seems KCNC is more about the bling than any better performance?

I tried KCNC on SRAM but also went back to the original. They definately spin better.

Also took my KCNC off. Looked nice but made the drivetrain quite a bit noisier, was really irritating.

well to me it looks like a person should try and replace the pulleys with the same make that was originally on the derailer.

I could not find the origional X9 ones anywhere,and tried the KCNC ones.

Sofar very happy with them ,they also seem to last better than the origionals.

Got myself a pare of Tacx (T4050) jockey wheels with sealed bearings.

 

+/- R100 for the set.

 

I'll try them and see how long they last.
