    SRAM rear derailleur & pulleys

    I'm overhauling son's bike, with SRAM Apex drive train.

    When re-assembling the rear derailleur cage & pulleys, I noticed the top pulley does not have the intentional side-to-side play found in Shimnao & Campy deraillers. I believe this feature is (or was) a Shimano patent to facilitate indexed shifting.

    Is this normal for SRAM top pulleys?

    I have little doubt I used the correct pulley locations -- the pulleys are stamped with identification. Just looking for confirmation that I didn't overlook anything obvious ...

    Correct. SRAM guide pulleys do not have axial play like the Shimano parts.
    ... 'cuz that's how I roll.
