Uh Oh... Balfa Parts...

I somehow managed to bend my pulley that sits just below the main pivot on my Balfa, anyone know a company that makes these?

any general engineering shop with a lathe will be able to make an alloy roller like that. I suspect you may need to look at the axle it runs on as I doubt that a roller of that bulk will bend with completely shagging something else.

Are you sure its not just the bolt that's bent? I have had that happen once before and got a replacement, so I would suggest going to Blacks Fasteners or something and getting one before you shell out the $$ for a new pulley.

The hole where the bolt go through the pulley has been bent out of line relative to the metal plates and the chain ring on it and even if i get a new bolt it will still move about 2cm side to side while moving.
