Why on earth are these so expensive?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Yes, they work great, it's a jockey wheel, but the bigger size of the lower wheel means it's more susceptible to damage, but, you know, whatever, Eagle is worth it.
But worse than that... the price is just stoopid. Shimano XT jockey wheels are, like $16. Sram needs to lower the price, or someone else needs to make a more affordable alternative.
