I've got an M960 rear mech thats in need of a new lower jockey wheel, anything cheap anywhere?
Genuine Shimano ones are unrealistically expensive :?

Search for TAcx

T4050 are probably the cheaper.

Ball bearing as well.

The current one, the teeth just worn then ?

EDIT

Assuming it's 11 tooth, I bought a couple of these a while back, they seem good quality but I haven't got around to trying one out yet.

IF they are anything like their cheap and cheerful quick releases then they'll do the job but not exude excellence and annoy you in little ways.
Do they offer float ?

I've gone for the Tacx 4050 option, at about £10 to the door they cost about 1/6 of a shimano pair :D

Just found them out and tried one on an M570 LX mech, no float atall so will only be ok for use as the lower one I reckon.

I've had a few bits off this guy and agree about the quick releases but they do the job and are way cheaper than anyone else. His outer brake cables are decent quality though and lined, massive colour choice too.
