Just ordered a pair of LX eight speed jockey wheels for my " spikey-toothed " M900 XTR mech. Will they fit? They guy at CRC didn't know ( rare for them ) and it's only a £2 charge to send back.
Also, will they fit M950s?

if you're running eight speed then it should be fine. I think XTR 9 speed had a slightly larger top jockey (one tooth extra IIRC). The main difference is that XTR uses sealed bearings and ceramic bushes rather than bits of metal and plastic. I think the bolt size is the same (although I'm willing to be shot down in flames at this moment)

physical size is the same... just the nice bearings for the difference :)

Tacx jockey wheels come with spacers to fit most mechs. They work fine and have a proper cartridge bearing. Normally about £10 for the pair
