    This expander rings flexes way too much under strain while climbing. The aluminum should be thicker up to the point just below where the chain sits on the ring.

    Fitted a 40t on a tesla evo freehub. Succeded in the end after quite a struggle. Fitting was made even more problematic by the slack tolerences/soft material on the hub body. The casette had made impressions in the splines like small notches if you will. Had to make a pressing tool to get the 40t all the way in. Now that it's mounted it works fine. I'm using it with a single chain ring (32t) and

    Beautifully machined and so easy to fit and set up. Shifting up and down from it is smooth and effortless.

    I have a surly LHT with compact chainset, XT shadow 9spd mech and 105 10spd shifters. I bought one of these and used it with a "supposedly" non compatible SLX 11-36. If you hacksaw through the pins holding the middle cogs together it all works perfectly. The 15-19 jump is big but I'm swapping the 15 for a 16 which should help. What a mish mash eh?Took the bike up "Mount Gabriel&quo

    Can't knock it does what it says on the tin for great price. However it won't work for every bike/mech but that's to be expected. For my 153 process I couldn't get it to work. But my cadabra it worked perfect with minimal tension adjustment. They both run identical shimano zee mech ect, Only diffrence is the mounting points for the mech are different. Just need superstar to start knocking out

    Bought one of these to satisfy my curiosity about a 1x10 conversion, this is being used with a new Shimano XT M771 cassette, XT chain, long cage SLX rear derailleur with clutch. I took my time in setting this up and used the supplied B-Tension screw even though I probably did not need it, and also made sure the cassette was correctly torqued up. I had read about shifting issues but after a coupe o

On the big bike, the blue ring I ordered was not machined correctly meaning 5 teeth literally were tee

  • Loose On Freehub

    Nice piece to have on your bike but be aware that it doesn't fit your freehub tight. It has about 0.75 mm play and might cause slipping and damaging your freehub grooves. I'm sending mine back and expect Superstar team to get back to the drawing board.

    Great product from Superstar at a great price. Fitted easily with removing 17T sprocket and shifts fine on a 10 speed XT cassette and mech. Longer B-Tension bolt included, but I didn't need it on my setup. Cheers
