I have a 10 speed XO RD
the jockey wheels are stuffed

looking for suggestions on replacements

not looking for Blackbox replacements either
not worth that much money

If the axle goes through the centre of both jockey wheels instead of off-centre on the top (bushed) jockey wheel like those stupid X-7 and X-5 RDs I've seen, I'd recommend BBB Roller Boys. X-O's should be fine if memory serves me correctly.

They seem to last a lot longer than the stock units, and they use cartridge bearings that roll much better than bushes and can be serviced by carefully teasing out the seals and flushing the grease out with brake cleaner before re-packing.
