SRAM jockey wheels big fail

So about 1 months intermittent use, and about 200 miles and one of the jockey wheels is seized solid. Should have figured really. Learning that every standard bearing needs packing with your own quality grease from new because the manufacturers just don’t bother. Bearing seals are designed to keep grease in not mud out, so they all fail eventually but even the big S  last 6 months. Another thing to add to regular servicing.
