    Lice looking, cheap, light and strong.Only let down by the bolts, that started getting rusty in about 6 months, there should be an option to get these with Ti bolts.

    Delivery took whole 3 weeks, that was a bummer. Stiffer than Jagwire cables (main reason I replaced them) and lookin' sexy in blue. I tried Simons tip and it works like a charm, tnx dude.

    Quite a light saddle (lighter than the stock one on my Specialized, at least), strong rails, looks cool, isn't a literal pain in the arse, and the print hasn't worn off yet. I'm happy!

    I totally agree with what other reviewers have said about the handle on this tool being too short to get adequate leverage to push the crank arm off the bottom bracket spindle (this type of tool often gets called a ‘crank puller', as it does here, but it's actually a pusher – think about it!).

    I ordered this last week and got the usual excellent next-day delivery from Superstar - they're about the best mail-order company I know in this respect.

    I wasted £18 on a replacement top guide for an mrp xc chain guide that didn't even fit my old mrp back plate before I got a vastly better product for much better value here. And a one day turnaround on delivery. Great job Superstar.

    Used these on Alex Rims and they worked just fine with the rim tape. Also can't beat free delivery and sweets.
  • Great Bearing

    5 stars
    I have fitted one of these to both my Canyon Nerve XC and my Canyon Grand Canyon AL SLX. Slots straight in and has so far lasted twice as long as the original bearing on my Nerve XC. Half the price and twice as good!
