Superstar Developing New Range Of Bikes – BikeRadar.

This is bound to bring the Superstar haters on STW out in force. The bikes look and sound interesting but DH monsters don’t really do it for Thetford!

    I use Superstar components (grips & chain guide currently) and they seem to couple a relatively low price with decent build quality. Now I’d certainly be interested if they could throw together a light, hardtail XC frame.

    I have Superstar Superleggera hubs and have used their disc pads for a year or so without problem. Actually it is better than that, they just last and last unlike the pads from the big S, Clarkes etc etc. At a fraction of the cost of mainstream kit they are brilliant.

    The bearings on my front hub died frighteningly quickly but that was hardly a big deal. Performance has been fine IMO.

    Superstar have a fully paid up hate clan on STW because Neil made a faux pas with his ‘terrorist marketing’ in the past and that was it. He could, or could have, made the best product in the world and he would still be reviled. Fortunately, more people on STW are beginning to accept that his products have got over any initial teething troubles and are fairly decent now.

    As per my Canyon post, I am all for the introduction of companies selling decent, sensibly priced product as without deep or near bottomless pockets now, a lot of people are being priced out of the sport altogether.
