There is an exception to the cog required idler rule and that is for the return chain which is only loaded by its own weight plus the tension from the derailleur arm spring. In this application a non-cogged idler is an option if it is well made and has high quality bearings and is not prone to premature wear.
Diameter of the return idler is 70 mm (2.75") which matches the 15 tooth TerraCycle power idlers.
