    Annoying. They won’t / don’t ship to Aus as there was some issue on a forum here where a few were claiming deliveries weren’t arriving (when they were) and getting refunds. I was gonna order some pads from them…

    Oh well.

    Race Matric / Uberbike still a decent bet these days?

    Still a country of thieves then… 😉

    Ordered some Clark’s pads off wiggle recently, good price and seem to be working well so far!

    I would order uberbike ones anyway, much better quality than the superstar ones in my opinion

    I can’t help think there’s a missed business opportunity if Australians are having to buy cheap Chinese pads from the UK

    As above, I hear Superstar have decided to leave the pad business citing ‘suicidal competition selling below cost’. No idea who they mean. This means that what they’re selling is end of stock though, so more popular choices may be gone anyway.

    Uberbike Race Matrix work for me.

    I was just reading on Facebook where you called superstar racist and here you pop up on the forum.

    I find it hard to believe they stopped sending to AUS because 80% of items went missing, that just doesnt happen – CRC etc all manage just fine – more likely it just wasnt worth the hassle but he seems incapable of being polite on facebook and thinks ‘trump speak’ is an acceptable way to address customers.

    Really dont understand the whole ‘stopped selling due to suicidal competitors’ statement, Superstar had a large customer base there and could have easily put up prices to keep profit margins the same, reduced the range to the most popular and still sold plenty.

    Then again, biker customers are sometimes the biggest assholes and feel they have the right to question a business about their practices like it isnt privately owned and none of their business.

    Superstar should just be polite and splurge some ‘changes in retail model / policy / delivery contract’ rather than go into rude exchanges with customers.

    Was taking the pee a bit but they were making out Aussie’s were ripping them off for every single order they sent. I believe the yoof call it “bants” innit.

    Fair enough, it’s their business. But like others say, there’s 24 million potential customers in Oz. I find it strange a company would sack off this potential custom based on the relative few dodgy customers but hey, I’m not in their business so what do I know?

    Shipping rates to Aus have gone up (again), which was probably a factor in deciding whether to put the effort in.
