i replaced mine about 2 year ago cos they where noisy. I put after-market metal pullys on, the replacable bearing type. since then i've been through 4 bearings in one of the pullys. they just keep getting noisy and grt tight to spin. luckly the bearings only cost $12ea.

I've only had to replace mine once as one fo them was noisey - forget which one now, never had to touch 'em since! Maybe you did get a dud, take back for replacement if it's only been a month.
