Can anyone tell me please whether this D14/B175 points cam is still serviceable?  It feels smooth but 400g-polished-side-2-2.jpg400g-polished-side-2-1.jpgat X10 it looks like the moon!

Hi,

I reckon that cam will work as the profile will remain largely unchanged even with the pitting  ...  BUT the wear on the points ‘heal’ will be much increased (may not be too much of an issue with limited mileage?).
