What a satisfying day. . . .

I helped my step-daughter change out the munched jockey wheels on an old Simplex rear derailler on an old Peugeot UO-18. It was great. We found left over parts at the local bike collective and did the job. I feel great, she thinks I'm a hero. What could be better than that. But what I need to know is what kind of rear derailler can we switch out to if these jockey wheels get munched also. Any ideas?

Replacement Simplex is pretty cheap or just ask on the Forum. There are many others that could likely be found at your bike collective. I've got a spare when my Simplex dies, Suntour AR.

Relating to our kids is satisfying when it works.

It the jockey wheels you fitted (congratulations) are in good condition, you probably won't need to change them for quite some time.
