Got one of these a while ago to replace a blackspire one that came on my DH bike. I got the the bashguard type so i could use the baash guard off the old one and it is excellent! Only complaint is the jockey wheel could be quieter but it does sound kinda cool. GO SUPERSTAR!!!!! Another plus is the BB mount they include as this meant i could use my old chain device on a dj bike i was making at the
No complaints so far.
In fact, they were 1st used on the Nant Gwrthyrn DH track ( 4 pot saints ) and proved very good.
Lasting well too, & compared with ̏20 plus for original Shimano ones, damn good value.
Just put a set onto the Kona ( Hayes 9's )and once again so far very good.
got one of these to fit my hope pro 2 on a santacruz heckler and what a differance it has made. easy to use and certainly stiffens the rear end up, i cannot complain about the axle or the service that superstar has provided. absolutly brilliant cheers.
I got the DH rims, Switch hubs and black race spokes. Got them to replace some Mavic EX325s that were pretty heavy, have now ridden them down my local DH track and can say that although they arent a lot lighter, I felt faster and they certainly seeemed strong enough to take rock gardens and drops etc. I wieghed them before I put them on and they total 2.2kg ish (without casette or rotors) which is
You've got to love Superstar!! Well built wheels that can take a hammering. Ride loose and run light - I have AM490's on my Pitch and can hammer around Wales all day without issue. Mates have had snapped spokes and bearing issues, yet Superstar have run true and smooth without resistance - oh and they do Gold which is superfly!! Why you don't do alloy nipples on your stock wheels I'll never know?!
Awesome components yet agin from Superstar. Great engineering, fits well and easy to adjust, not had a single problem - a work of art to adorn my steed. After 20yrs+ of MTB riding (I started early) components like this have never been so good. Here's a tip to the negative folks - fit it right and you wont have an issue!!
