Exceptional value and really nicley finished. I bought two, one in Red and one in blue.
The only very minute downside is the blue is not a match at all for other blue superstar products, but the red is spot on! Dont let that put you off because they really are superb...
12 months on and now replacing with a new set. They have coped with Coed Y Brenin, couple of other trail centres. Some quarry work up in Lancashire and main XC trail riding in the pennines in all weathers. Work in all conditions with the Hayes Stroker Trail set. I would and have recommended to fellow riders.
Visited Afan Forest in wales last weekend, weather was very wet/muddy (rained all day Friday and Saturday)and horizontal rain, replaced my standard hope pads with these pads, and without running them in they worked superbly well in these very difficult conditions, great feel all day long and even through the rivers and streams still gave very good brake performance throughout, i've just ordered 4
Got mine a few months back for my 06 Stinky, ran with a bashring. Fitting was a bit fiddly and it took a few rides to get the chain alignment etc correct, but once fitted it runs smoothly. Its a bit noisy, but this doesn't bother me, and since i got it for ̏35 compared to a ̏120 e-thirteen, i'm not complaining in the slightest! One thing i would say, i'd prefer if it came with a bashplate, but aga
nice enough stem but far to small and puny looking, i got the 65mm version, not really an all mountain type look or design, more XC, i thought it would of been more robust looking tbh, looks daft on my bike, but thats just my circumstances, its nicely made
A very nice chain guide.
BUT, it is more finicky on chain line than other brand's offerings. I had problems with mine jamming and rattling, fixed it by moving one spacer from the bb over to the other side, moving the chainring 2.5mm closer to the plate. Now it's silent and smooth.
Not as easy to put together as a LS1, but when I bought this it was ̏10 less than a new backing plate for that!
