- What Jockey wheels fit the bottom pulley of an X9 mech?
I reckon “any” (tension type) jockey wheel should fit the bottom one, though I haven’t had chance to experiment.
AS the fitting is centred, I can’t see it being a problem.
Haven’t tried cause the ‘plastic like’ allen key bolt head deformed on mine, so I was forced to unseize my jockey wheel in situ & have ignore it since…Posted 8 years agosingletrackmindMember
Try some Tacx ones from UKbikestore. £16 give or take. Proper sealed bearings , and come with several sets ofend plates. This makes them universal fit fot X9 and X0 rear mechs. I always fill the gap between the bearings and the end caps with white grease, so that it squeezes out when tightened.Posted 8 years ago
Not used them long enough / over winter so cannot give you a guarentee on longevityAndyPaiceMember
theX9 mech I had was a standard lower wheel (bolt through the centre of the wheel) and the upper pulley was an eccentric mounted pulley (bolt was off centre).
I used an old shimano wheel on the lower position with no problems, but the upper wheel would need to be the proper sram X9 one.
Just make sure the pulley has the correct no of teeth as they usually come in 10t or 11t modelsPosted 8 years ago
