    Posted on 28 October 2011 about 4 Pack Kevlar Disc Brake Pads

    4 stars
    I have these on some Magura Julie HPs.. They're good, but not amazing. Very good pad life, solid braking power, and no problems with fade. Did a week of lift assist XC in morzine on these and barely wore em down at all. Considering you can buy 4 sets for the price of a set of standard Magura pads, and work maybe 80% as well, they're amazing value. You really need to cook them to bed em in though,

    Posted on 27 October 2011 about Double Chain Device - CLEARANCE - ISCG ONLY

    2 stars
    I agree with John Ellisons review entirely. I bought this to fit on a dual and bash setup on a new Cotic BFe frame. Nightmare issues from the off. The bolts attaching the device easily hit the bolts holding the granny ring. I bought an angle grinder to grind both set of bolts down, and had to file a big ching out of the device to make way for one the frames chainstays. With bolts ground down and t

    5 stars
    Most excellent. The price of these pads is amazing. Unfortunately the LBS doesn't have a chance when they are retailing organic pads for ̏14 a pair. Back to the pads. I broke them in properly honking up and dragging down some road hills and spraying water all over the calipers. Then took them on a peaks 20 miler in wet conditions. I then took them out again last night for an hour and a half local

    4 stars
    In english and german English: Used these sintered pads for my shimano saint 4-piston for DH in Switzerland and the Alps. The brake power is really good, comparable to the original shimano-pads if you had bedded in these pads properly. The modulation is better than with the shimano-pads but you also need more finger power for full braking. On long DH-runs, fading is noticeable after 2-3 minutes

    Posted on 21 October 2011 about Plasma Chain Device - ISCG Only

    3 stars
    ARGHHHHH!!!!!!!! At ̏50, initially you cannot fault the Plasma guide, apart from its weight. However, its still strong. I am fairly mechanical minded but just could not get my head around setting this up. I've completely ruined my ISCG mounts on my frame because of taking it off and on so many times. I resulted into purchasing Superstars XCR chain device (BB Mount) which fitted straight on. No

    4 stars
    These are cheap and good quality - whats not to like?! I did find tho that the adaptor was slightly too thick around the outside face of the bottom screwhole (if you get where i mean) for the mounts on my magura forks however a little judicious use of my faithful dremmel and hey presto it fits! I mention this not as a fault but as a caution to those with magura forks if you are going to m

    5 stars
    Excellent grips, comfortable with or without gloves, don't wear very quickly and of course the lockrings are reusable. If you buy the light coloured grips don't expect to be able to keep them clean, but that goes without saying really...

    3 stars
    I have mixed feelings about this product. The first batch I ordered have held up well, good pad life and good springs. The second batch was not good. Ill-adjusted springs with poor tolerance and easy to get caught on the rotor. When this happens, the pad itself wears very fast. A friend of mine went through 4 sets during 6 days of riding with TrailAddiction in Les Arcs.

    4 stars
    Great value for money. Why pay ̏60 when this does the job ? I needed a shorter XC stem and this was a straight forward no fuss replacement, it looks good and I prefer the more discrete labelling. Giving it 4 stars as it is too early to comment on longevity.
