Ordered Sunday night, arrived Tuesday morning-great service. Fitted them to deore brakes, and once bedded in, they give more power and more feel at the lever- spot on. Can't comment on lifespan yet, but I've had a set of these before and they lasted well. ̏ for ̏ they are brilliant, and I can"t understand why you"d pay more for less. The best bit? I used them to teach my son how disc brakes work,
Great product I have been using these for years now (approx. 3). Better wear rate than stock shimanos and cheaper too. Run them on all my bikes, 4 discs and not one problem.
1 bike with 1000km all off road
1 bike with 4000km on and off road
still on original sets
I have been running these for 2 years, thankfully superstar warranty has been fantastic. They could not of provided better service, however I have been let down by the product on numerous occasions. I have cracked 2 alloy freehubs, sent replacents and finally asked for a steel one to be sent. This has solved the freehub issue.
Next to go was the actual splines within the hub that the freehub enga
Great very pleased with design and quality. I have recently got a really stiff carbon frame and noticed considerable wheel flex. Fitted this to cross country bike and problem solved. I honestly feel more flex in my full bounce with a 12mm maxle. More people should be aware of this great solution.
1st ..... I have been using a PM-PM 203mm adapter for the front and this has bent out of alignment. I did not notice at first as I was using avids with their silly cone washer system and this was allowing the caliper to be installed in a reasonable position. I only noticed when fitting new shimanos with a direct mount, they wouldn't even come close to fitting.
2nd .... on rear I have used PM-IS 1
Not a bad looking rotor but for some reason seems to be less than 180mm in diameter and the pad is right on the edge of the disc. Not sure how it's going to affect the braking yet as I haven't had a chance to use the bike yet but I have my concerns.
In recent months I have cut a Shimano BT90 hose, a Superstar 4 layer hose and 2 x Avid Elixir hoses. It cuts clean and straight but you need to place it on a flat surface and press down or it can cut at an angle. Cheap but it has done the job and paid for itself.
