Shimano jockey wheels compatability question
Hi all. I am using a long-cage 105 rear derailleur with a 9-speed set-up and have decided the jockey wheels could do with replacing.
Can I use any Shimano (or other?) jockey wheels? Will they all be compatible with the 9-speed chain?
As a side issue, what is the best way to lubricate the "bearings" of these wheels? I'm not sure if the squeaking I get from that direction is due solely to wear, or also to lack of lubrication. Whatever I try kills the noise only for 30 miles or so.
Thanks for any info.
