- Jockey Wheels – how much play is too much?
Normally I’ve had to replace them when they’ve seized up (SRAM), but my current set on an x9 10 speed mech have a lot of lateral, and some fore and aft movement. The bike shifts ok, but the drive chain is getting noisy in a worn-bearings type way.
I know there is supposed to be some float in the 2 wheels, just not sure how much or if they are close to failing.Posted 4 years agodeadkennySubscriber
Sram top one is supposed to float. Helps supposedly with shifting? However it doesn’t really matter. I replaced their plasticy cheap quality (but expensive to buy) stuff with KCNC jockeys. They last a hell of a lot longer, a bit of bling, well vented and clear mud nicely, easier to clean, and they don’t have any ‘float’ but yet work perfectly fine. If you go for them though, fork out for the ceramic bearing ones.Posted 4 years ago
