    3 stars
    The added stiffness is great, but the QR mech is squeaky and not very easy to operate (compared to the "etalon" XT QR mech), and the worst thing is that the nut is very slippery and hard to grab, since it is a flat, polished surface. This design I cannot understand why they did not copy the XT nut which is - again - lightyears better. Shouldn't have cost a penny to do it right. In the end I went f

    Don't fool yourself buy Park Tool GP-2 which are great. I'm generally pleased with Superstar stuff, but these are crap. To superstar thoew your last stock in the bin, by selling these you are fooling your customers.

    Really short handle, the metal hand is 11cm long. You can get the rubber part off and then use your seatpost to increase the hand length.

    Waste of money. The 15mm wrench is to loose and is damaging the nut, the lockring key is useless due the chainwhip rivet making it unable to put it firmly in the lockring making unable to unscrew the lockring, or screw it safely for trackuse. It's just a 8 pounds bottle opener with a chainwhip feature in my opinion.

    5 stars
    DO NOT EVEN attempt to remove an old headset without this tool. I have just bought a s/h Felt frame with a rubbish old headset. Tool in, one hit with a nylon faced hammer and out. Same the other end Takes seconds. I know someone who had to spend ̏̏̏̏̏̏̏̏ on getting a frame repaired as the used a cold chisel to remove the headset. ̏15.00 well spent . ****************** loads of stars for this

    Well made piece of kit and a lot cheaper than the Park Tools one. Again don't attempt the job without this tool. I once borrowed one from a mate who stood over me while I did the job, so with 2 to do immediately, and a few to do in the near future I bought my own. ̏35 quid well spent.

    Has a high or low spot on the braking surface which causes the brake to snatch. Should have kept to Avid!!

    5 stars
    Great pads - I'm using them in all my Elixirs. Stopping power is as good as organic and they last so much better, but bite properly from cold. In short, they do what SS say they do. They're also red and look very cool sitting in your caliper ... Perfect fit in caliper assuming you've returned the piston fully. I'm not sure what another pad can do to improve on this one for me, to be hones
