    That one is easy to change. It looks like it has alot of life left in it, why change it? If its because the nubs are worn down that don't mean a thing. Just put a lil more pressure on the tire is all. You can get a few thousand more miles out of that roller, its friction drive remember. Dax only has 1 in and 1 1/4 roller sizes.
