Can a non carbon x.o rear der be coverted into a carbon version by replacing the alum. cage with the carbon version? what else can I do to lighten it.
yea, you're right. it's about half the cost of an '07 xtr derailer. a little more feasable if you have to get one anyway...aussie_yeti said:we're talking australian dollars and we're talking retail through a local bike store. buy it from a us online store and i'd be thinking somewhere around the 70-80 US dollar mark.
nope. it's a redundant part anyway. makes you wonder why deraielrs have them in the first place when there's an adjuster on the shifter?MileHighMark said:No barrel adjuster on the 970's? :shocked:
wow, i wonder how much the xo pulleys weigh? how much do those pulleys weigh? what kind are they / where did you get them from / how much do they cost?bigfish said:I swapped out the jockey wheels on my X.9 and went from 224.6g to 202.8g, 21.8g saved. Heavy Jockey wheels eh?
Does it seem like they spin as well as the stock pulleys? Also, would it have worked if you had turned one of them around so that they were both offset in the same direction?BlownCivic said:I bought those exact pulleys from that seller, and they are great quality. The weight is as advertised (within a gram or so). The only problem I had was with the spacers. When installed with the spacers as is, one pulley was offset slightly to one side of the derailleur cage, and the other pulley the other side. I took some 320 grit wet/dry sandpaper and water and sanded 2 of the spacers from 1.6mm down to .9mm, and mounted the pulleys with a thin spacer on one side with the top pulley, and the other side with the bottom pulley, and everything centered right up. I don't have much time with these on the bike yet because the weather has been shiite, and the holidays and all, but they dropped the weight of my med. cage X0 from 199 to 176g.
