IIRC, Suntour jockeys were always slightly thinner than Shimano. I know that some people ran trick alloy or ti jockeys in Suntour mechs, so I was wondering: did anyone ever make Suntour 'upgrades', or were they just filed-down Shimano jockeys... or even custom one-offs?

Pointless question, I know, but BiTD it always really bugged me that I was the only one who didn't have anodised jockey wheels :( :lol:

Not sure about after market ones but I just bought a set of these for my XC9000 rear mech.

They were $29 to start with but as the stock has gone down the price has gone up...
