Anyone using superstar rotor,s or chain device
Thumbs up here for the XCR single ring chain device, using on a 1×10 setup – it works, it’s light and is 1/2 the cost of most others. Can’t complain at that.
I’m running their rotors on one of my spare set of wheels. Again, they work, they’re cheap, what’s not to like? (They do seem a little thicker then my OEM Shimano rotors, which when swapping between sets of wheels gives a different bite point)Posted 6 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
XCR chain device works well for me, dropped the chain today but thinking about it that’s the first time it’s happened since I fitted it last year so, not bad going that! I can see a couple of ways of easily improving the design- adjusting the offset with BB spacers is daft, you should have the ability to space just the guide in and out- but it’s decent, and cheap.
The rotors, mmm, I got a 203mm one which was drilled slightly offcentre but the other ones have been fine. Just the same as my old Tektro ones.Posted 6 years agodoug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
Using a flame rotor, no problems at all. 203mm, on the back only. Plenty of power, no juddering. I bent it a wee bit a while back but it straightened no bother. It replaced an Avid which was very worn but it’s been on there about 8-9 months so it’s done plenty of miles.Posted 6 years agojambonMember
I really like the Blackspire Stinger is you want a 2 ring chain device.
Well made.Posted 6 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Fitted an XCR chain device on Fri. Not exactly straightforward. Couldnt get it to line up. Ended up gluing plastic shims (cut-up zip-tie) behind the plastic chain guide part to get the spacing right. Not tried it out off road yet but didnt drop at all while ragging it round the street. Have bought a second so I can run the 29er as 1×9 when needed. Loathe to fit it yet because they arent exactly pretty. 😉Posted 6 years agojamesMember
“single ring XC guide thingy – why spend loads and loads and loads on an e.13 etc when you can spend under £20 on a superstar which does EXACTLY the same job???”
e13 and the other one weigh less than the superstar one
I have the superstar one because it was to go onto the 2nd bike, fitting is a bit of a faff as you don’t really know how much room to give the chain to flap about etcPosted 6 years ago
Was made more difficult as I’m using a 73mm octalink BB in a 68mm shell frame, so I don’t have the option of using the BB spacers without offsetting the BB/cranks, I’ve a filed down washer between the cage and the backplate which seems to work okay, I thought there wasn’t enough clearance as it was catching in top and bottom gears until I noticed my chainring was bent ..
