Sram ESP 3.0 Rear derailleur pulley help needed
My wife and i ( 63 and 56 yrs ) are new to biking, a month back I picked up a couple used treks, 7100 (03) for her and a 7500 (04) for myself. The 7100 could not have been ridden more than a few hundred miles. Note : She loves the Twist Grip shifters.
After initial purchase, helmets, clothing, tools and a bike stand i am giving each a complete check out and 'tune up' .
All went well with cleaning and adjusting with one small concern. There is a slight 'clicking' noise coming from both the pulleys on the Sram ESP 3.0 rear derailleur. I have not try to take the pulleys off to clean a lub as i don't want to mess them up and put out of service right now. We are going away with bikes next weekend.
Is that clicking noise normal ??? Are the pulleys serviceable ??? I realize that derailleur is inexpensive so shoul i just replace it ??? fwiw it does shift very well.
I am new to biking and new to the forum so go easy if these a dumb questions.
