    Deore LX pulleys

    Does anyone know where I can find these? I have looked in several places online. They are 11T and I am hoping for alloy, but plastic will do.

    Any Shimano-compatible 11T pulleys will work. Know that some generic ones do not have a different version for the top pulley. Shimano uses a different top pulley (called Centeron);. this play helps center the pulley under the cog.

    Yow!
    I didn't realize they were that expensive.
    I'm glad I have some old RD's in the parts box.

    Here is a lower cost set that should work too:

    Check Universal Cycles, the LX ones are very reasonable, pick the correct one for your specific model .... http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...62&category=74

    The differences in prices you're finding is the Ultegra/XT and above pulleys are sealed bearings, the 105/LX and lower are not.

    Your LBS should have them. Last time I checked, LX/Tiagra/105-level pulley sets went for about $10.

    Thanks HillRider and Gathr. Torchy, I asked at the LBS up the street, and the guy said he did not have the pulleys for the nine speed. He didn't offer to order them, and I wasn't going to beg. Looks like I'll be up and running, now!
    I did see some ceramic ones by Origin 8 that looked hot:

    Anybody ever use these? I'd like some that last a bit longer than the plastic.

    Yes, I have used these and FSA's with good success. The one difference I found was with the FSA's, the top pulley did not have any 'float', so RD adjustment had to be 'tweaked' a little, but once I got it right, I liked it a lot better than those with 'float'.

    Your drivetrain is not going to care what "speed" the pulleys are. Derailleur chains have the same inner width. Again, any Shimano-compatible 11T pulley will work.

    11 tooth replacements are common a lot of 10 tooth too , SIS type Click shift needs the top one to slop back and forth a bit.

    I traded bike parts at my dealer for Carmichael Ti pulleys , nearly permanent ..

    But they quit the Biz..

    The Carmichaels look nice, Bob, a little bit out of my price range right now, though.. I almost went with the Origin 8. Couldn't find Control Tech.
    I have Suntour Accu-Shift indexing, not SIS.
