Not ever, never ever gonna happen!

This derailleur upgrade could save you watts and grams, but it will cost you your first-born
This derailleur upgrade kit, which includes both jockey wheels with a composite derailleur cage retails for a jaw-dropping 1,500 / $1,700.

Can't imagine there's much of a market for $1,700 pulleys. Crazy.
