It occurred to me yesterday as I was sorting out some issues in my bike that some kit that was initially brilliant has lost some of its shine and become disappointing.
So what has been good for you and gradually got to be disappointing?
Mine are: IceTech rotors - these were great and lovely for about 3,000 miles and now have started to wear out - so you can see pits where the steel is not there anymore and the aluminium is visible - next step is going to be an accident I am sure. In contrast I have never had issues with standard steel or hope floating rotors.
CrossMax ST - brilliant, light, responsive. Now they creak and occasionally the pick up slips when I go to pedal. That's after about 1500 miles. Going back under warranty.
What are your long term disappointments in the spirit of consumer research?
