i have had these jockey wheels for ages now.
never been able to use them due to the inside diameter being too big for the bolt that goes through the old jockey wheel.
anyone have a solution to this problem, anyone had the same problem ?
thanks in advance.

These may help. They have the little plastic inserts for sealed bearings.

My BBB jockey wheels came with a similar set of plastic spacers and they're a bit cheaper and free delivery from Wiggle: http://www.wiggle.co.uk/bbb-bdp-rollerb ... ey-wheels/

Here's what you're missing...

...can't imagine there'd be too many bids on them?

I've got dozens of these spare Jeff.

Remind me to bring some along next time you come on a ride.

If you want to make a floating top jockey then get a metal gear/brake ferrule that fits snugly inside,and cut so that its a couple of mm wider than the jockey, then pop a washer either side and bolt to mech. Worked with all mine. You can also butcher some cheap plastic wheels for the parts to turn it into a floater.
