    billet derailleur pulleys

    Anyone know any of aftermarkets company(s) that makes any billet rear derailleur pulleys? Tried searching and nothing comes up. I remember back in the days there were a bunch like Carmichael, Precision Billet, and American Classic. But now, nothing.

    Plenty on ebay; even a few bullseyes. Some quite spendy. I do not like the ones with cutouts as they become dirt/lube havens. I like the solid ones.

    I'm pretty sure Paul had some 10t sealed cartridge bearing guys at Interbike this year.

    I've never found them to shift better and drivetrain noise is almost always louder...but here you go.

    Just trying to add some bling to my Felt. I know they don't offer any performance gains other than the bling factor. Thanks for the links.

    Being AL rather than plastic, don't they wear the chain faster? I thought I remember this being the case

    Won't effect the chain either way. It's a heat-treated steel chain vs an alloy or plastic pulley. Guess which loses that battle.

    The key to solving any problem is to understand and address the underlying cause.
