    I have just replaced the stock pads on my Shimano SLX disc brakes with the Organic Pads, the Shimano were never very good, no bite noisy and just poor stopping power. The Superstar pads are awesome! Loads of bite and control. Bedded in following the instructions on the packet in 5 minutes. Very impressed.

    4 stars
    Bought this chain device for my Nomad but sadly I can't mount it because there is not enough clearance between the upper screw from the top guid and the frame. Also the bash guard is to big for small chainrings but this is more an optical problem than a technical one For me it isn't/wasn't clear whats the difference between BASH GUID and the NON BASH GUID
