Bearings die quickly in filth, but I don't think any quicker than on my other device, which is a Blackspire. Two sets of bearings on the roller as opposed to one on the Blackspire. Dunno if this is a plus or a minus, really. The roller isn't as good on the Superstar though - it could do with a step, as has been mentioned.
Does the job though, and it is very cheap.
Ordered a 5 layer kit in gay-ass red on Monday morning, it was delivered to Glasgow less than 24 hrs later. Fitting took less than an hour for both, and that includes bleeding my Avid Elixirs. The hose itself looks and feels every bit a match for the Goodridge lines on my other bike. The only criticism I have is that a lack of comprehensive fitting instructions could be an issue for someone who ha
Brilliant pedals delivered next day. I spent more time repositioning my foot on my v12s than pedalling but the slightly bigger squarer platform on these is spot on.
Nice and shiny too, and go very well with my green Piglet, which is nice.
Dont waste your money, this BB lasted only 4 months and most of my riding was on road too! The bearings are cheap and were totally seized and rusted. Either buy a Shimano XT/SLX HT2 BB which will last at least twice as long, has much higher quality bearings and much better sealing or buy a couple of Superstar ceramic hybrid bearings and press them in to some old HT2 cups. From experience i have us
Cracking pedals !!
The lad uses them on his Spec Enduro & his DH bikes.
Bent an axle on a DH race recently ( after a big hit ), but bought a replacement that arrived quickly.
One thing though, if you're going to use them for DH ing, the thru pin models are a bit tougher, as we've bent / broken a couple of the grub screws on that particular type.
I bought a red one of these to replace the standard black QR on my Cube Reaction. As long as you can live with it not being QR, this is a very light and good looking alternative. It's very nicely finished and machined and looks neat and slick on the bike. Yet again another nice piece of kit from Superstar. Check out the nano pedals, they are gorgeous.
Bit too much material cut away in the shaft clamp area, if you ask me. When torqued to just 4Nm, the bolts bend (plastic deformation), even though they are pretty short. Not a good sign. I don't really trust that stem now for real AM usage. But could hold up fine. Who knows. And neat looking, that's true.
Good Price,Fit well for my Santacruz Heckler and Extralite-Octaramp 30T Chainring.
