I spent a while looking and trying wheels to take a chunk of weight out of my wheelset that was holding back my Knolly and settled on these due to their amazing price and my past experience of Superstar.
They are epic. Well made, light and attractive. They replaced Mavic EX729s and I recommend them to anyone and everyone.
Bottles are fine, look aero and they pop in easily and seem secure...
Mouth piece is cheap plastic though, so if you now only used to using nice spongy mouth pieces then you won't like these too much
But one cage? Pointless having 2 bottles then!

Nano-x EVO Pedals
I was sure my ancient Ultramags were ruined when the old bearings died so ordered these on the offchance I could resurrect them. So happy I did, they spin like new now!
From a bike that was dropping chain a couple of times a ride to none, thumbs up superstar!
Super easy to install (I [carefully!] used the rubber mallet technique) and seems to be really well designed with clever seals so the bearings should last well in Welsh slop. Can't really feel the change in head angle but I'm going faster downhill so must be doing something good!
Had this chainring for over 6 months and no dropped chains at all. Used with 10 speed slx/deore stuff with no chainguide needed. Looks to be lasting well (has outlasted 2 new chains and cassettes already)

Fuel Rear Hub
Have a set of the 26" Arch. Pleased with the weight, pickup of the hub and the width is great. My biggest gripe is that mounting my 2.4" High Roller or 2.5" Minion is a fight to get the bead over the rim. Had to use soap solution. Dreading getting a trailside puncture.
I think the problem is normally the tyres not the wheel
Bring the Alpine Series back.
i just had my 3d 180 rotor too flimsy to use (Rear with sintered pads). The rings that hold the rotor to the main body had been very wobbly. the scream a lot and make every trail dramatic.
Superstar commment: the functionl parts of this rotor and the old version are exactly the same? The rotors are meant to float, if there is vibration its something
