Today I inspected my Spud Rollers. After experimenting with two different types of commercial chain rollers, I installed my polyurethane Spud Rollers in my chain guide. Here is a photograph of the "left" side of my Spud Rollers after 3,000 miles of wear.

Here is a photo of the top view of my Spud Rollers. As you can see, my Spud Rollers have virtually no wear after 3,000 miles of riding.

My Spud Rollers are virtually maintenance free, and have survived a lot of punishment in the dirty, harsh environment of the chain guide. For the purposes of comparison, here is a photo of two, commercial, chain rollers after 2,400 miles of wear in my chain guide.
