I was sure my ancient Ultramags were ruined when the old bearings died so ordered these on the offchance I could resurrect them. So happy I did, they spin like new now!
From a bike that was dropping chain a couple of times a ride to none, thumbs up superstar!
Super easy to install (I [carefully!] used the rubber mallet technique) and seems to be really well designed with clever seals so the bearings should last well in Welsh slop. Can't really feel the change in head angle but I'm going faster downhill so must be doing something good!
Had this chainring for over 6 months and no dropped chains at all. Used with 10 speed slx/deore stuff with no chainguide needed. Looks to be lasting well (has outlasted 2 new chains and cassettes already)

Fuel Rear Hub
Bring the Alpine Series back.
i just had my 3d 180 rotor too flimsy to use (Rear with sintered pads). The rings that hold the rotor to the main body had been very wobbly. the scream a lot and make every trail dramatic.
Superstar commment: the functionl parts of this rotor and the old version are exactly the same? The rotors are meant to float, if there is vibration its something
Stiff and well made. Great!

Slider Chain Device
I've tried this to fit on my Bird Aeris with GX Eagle on it and from the start the top guide was impossible to set up. It's just too long and too narrow inside.
The tensioner was a bit tricky to set up, as the narrower chain had tendency to fall of it.
I thought I would use it for the bash plate, but that ended when the chain fell between the ring and the backplate. Because of the way the screws
Very well made, nice finish and details.
I recently bought one of these tampers which is very nicely machined but it seemed a bit light compared to my old tamper.
Anyway I used it it fits my portafilter really well with a fraction of a mm to spare it taps the grounds perfectly and the shots are not as hit or miss when using the old Tamper which I have now retired.
Bottom line works a treat another great purchase from SSC
