Source for vintage Campy jockey wheels ?

I have a Campagnolo Super Record rear derailleur on my 1984 Trek 770 that needs new jockey wheels. Can you suggest a source ? It doesn't have to be original Campy, can be an aftermarket replacement as long as it works

Try Euro Asia Imports, not sure they sell direct but if not your shop can order. They're very...proud...of their inventory and charge accordingly. If you just want plain ole pulleys Tacx makes pulleys of all different types.

Might be a better question at the C&V forum. There are certainly experts there that can tell you exactly what you need.

cxwrench,
Thanks for the info on Euro Aisia Imports. They have a very good website. I was able to drill down to a selection of Campy rear derailleur jockey wheels they have listed. I need to find out what Campy part number I need for my old 7 speed derailleur. They sell only wholesale I found out. The local bike shops are super swamped now so can't pursue it now but I have some part numbers, now to find which one I need.

aggiegrads,
Thats a good idea, thanks. I will post this on the C&V forum also. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has tried sourcing these jockey pulleys

Frogman, PM me with the part numbers you need and I might be able to place an order for you in the nearish future. Currently I don't have anything I desperately need from EAI (just did an order a month or two ago) but I could pop an order in at some point if not a rush.

Tacx is my go to for pulley wheels for vintage bikes I for some reason keep a set of Ceramic ones in my bedroom in case I need them for any of my old Shimano stuff (currently have a pair on my Dura Ace 7400 and they are flawless). I also know at one point Soma I think did some vintage style pulley wheels for NR and SR type stuff.

I haven't been able find out the correct Campy part number. I will contact you if i can find it, thanks. I am interested in the Tacx but also like Campy can't find a compatibility list. I keep thinking it shouldn't be that difficult. 10 teeth, 5mm shaft, I read in another post on the forum that some have had luck with using Shimano jockey pulleys like the TY05 ? I wish I worked in a bike shop, I could try different Shimano pulleys. I am not in a rush, plenty of time on my hands during this pandemic. As the saying goes way too much time on my hands. Thanks for the help !

Unfortunately Tacx no longer makes jockey wheels. I believe Garmin bought them out a few years ago and decided not to continue to sell jockey wheels anymore. Boooo. You may still be able to find some NOS floating around but my experience was that the prices were jacked up to crazy $$.

​​​​​​I wrote this same thing on a similar thread we had a month ago. Take 'em off a Nuovo Record derailleur. Search ebay for "ty05" wheels, and put those new Shimanos on the NR.

Not sure if I understand. I need to get a Nuovo Record derailleur to replace my Super Record derailleur then put in the TY05 Shimano jockey wheels ? Won't the TY05 wheels work in the Super Record derailleur ?

Yeah, but it's SR, which deserves original Campy wheels.

The Campagnolo part number is 0010/03, but as noted above, other non-Campagnolo pulleys will also work.

I'm trying a set from Velo Orange in my Victory RD. They come with 4 different bushing sizes to match a lot of different RD's. Trying these because they match the frame, LOL!

I wanted to post the outcome to my search for vintage Campy jockey wheels.
I found a set of original campy wheels (paid more than I should have ) and replaced the old cracked wheels. I also ordered the Shimano TY05 wheels and they will be my spare set. They work fine. As discussed the plastic campy wheels universally develop cracks after awhile, that is a shame because other than the cracking issue they are made very well. The campy wheels are bonded to a metal sleeve inside which provides the surface for the sleeve bearing. The Shimano wheels do not have a metal sleeve molded in the bore, they use the plastic wheel bore as the bearing surface around the sleeve bearing. See these pics of the Campy / Shimano wheels. Anyway, learned more about jockey wheels and thanks to everyone that helped me on this. !

So where did you get them? I had found one in my LBS parts bin a couple of years ago, so I snagged it for a future repair.

I got them from retrobicyclesupply on Ebay. I'm not sure if he has any left though. I was lucky I think. Any bike parts I have tried to get even for the newer items is in short supply.

I don’t know Campgnolo parts, but I vaguely remember a thread that indicated older Suntour jockey wheels will fit the shaft diameter.

You can probably search for that info.
