    4 stars
    As anyone who's attempted the job knows, a tool like this, whether you call it a cable puller or a third hand or a fourth hand or whatever, is invaluable when you're installing brakes and gear cables. This Superstar one is as good as any, except for one little niggle. The ratchet lock thingy kept flopping down and locking the tool when I didn't want it to, which was annoying. So I drilled out the

    Had pedals from Superstar before and very happy with them. Bought these as UK made and assembled. There's the problem right there. One axle was so stiff l could barely turn it. Superstar put that down to very tight tolerances. Why one pedal stiff and the other not then??? Stripped the pedals and the problem was basically no grease. Used some good quality grease and pedals are now as they should ha

    So, they're here! They arrived and came with the pins seperate from the pedals with two different sizes. Benefit of building them yourself is spending time making sure the pins are in tight.

There's quite a lot of pins so I used the shorter ones and after a quick spin on a trail this evening I got quite a

    I've had this on my bike for a few months now, and all I can say is I've almost forgotten it's there. That's a compliment to how good it is, it just gets on with the job of keeping my chain on. It's quiet too. I've had no problems shifting gears with it fitted, and aside from a bit of head scratching, it was fairly easy to fit. Does take a bit of juggling with washers and spacing, but it's not di
