Only 1100 and it looks like that! I've just replaced jockey wheels on my rd and it had done 4000. Running like a dream now, rd's last a long time and it takes a lot to wear the spring out. New Shimano ones where a tenner.Thanks all. I've done 1100miles. At least half of that was off road so I guess it's to be expected.
I've done thousands of miles on various bicycles over the years (not off-road, though), and never suffered from any noticeable wear on jockey-wheels. It's just something I've never had to worry about.Thanks all. I've done 1100miles. At least half of that was off road so I guess it's to be expected.
Only when its on its largest cog - otherwise it goes right back when it's on it's smallest.Is the position of the derailleur arm shown in the picture (ie, swivelled right forwards) indicative of how it is set-up much of the time? If so, that's probably the cause of the premature wear.
