Looking for one of these as mine is badly worn! Can't seem to find one that I know is definitely what I am after. Some say 9spd, some stay 10spd. None say SLX?!

ANy help, greatly appreciated.

    Doesn't matter. Same number of teeth and speed and make sure you fit the correctly to top and bottom

    See that makes no sense to me. I can buy any jockey wheel I see? Or do you mean pick one with same number of teeth on it, thing is buying online can't even see on half of them how many teeth they have. Here for example:

    They look easy to fit. Can deal with that. It's the bottom one I need, don't need a top one.

    Anything 10 speed will fit., the more you pay, the better the quality.

    Which jockey is worn? You do know the top one should move side to side right?

    Ok. On that ChainRactions link the 10spd ones are expensive as!!! Lol

    The bottom one is worn, top one isn't. It's properly worn, more like a start shape than spiky bits. The outer bit has pretty much fallen off the inner bearing bit too.
