Tom Sturdy of Sturdy Cycles is famed for his beautiful bicycle creations, almost exclusively 3D printed or CNC Machined from Titanium at his workshop in Frome, Somerset. We have previously featured Tom’s Fiadh Titanium Road Bike , and his Ti Crankset , both of which one simply must see as they are both jaw-droppingly gorgeous. Now, a set of Sturdy’s 3D Printed Titanium Jockey Wheels can be yours if you part ways with £166.66 of your hard earned cash. Sturdy Cycles 3D Printed Titanium Jockey Wheels
Just a thousand pounds’ worth right here… Sturdy Cycles’ Jockey Wheels come as a pair; one has 12T and the other has 14T. They can replace the stock jockey wheels on almost any derailleur so long as the cage is built to accomodate those sizes. Titanium is known as a durable material, thus isn’t a bad option for a high wear component such as a jockey wheel.
Sturdy’s Jockey Wheels spin on stainless steel enduro bearings with a custom machined aluminum bearing cap, both of which are replaceable. Caps are available with 4mm, 5mm or 6mm bores to suit the vast majority of derailleur cages.
Tom has previously produced CNC machined Ti Jockey Wheels, but he has now turned to 3D printed versions as the manufacturing process gave him more control over the design.
