Superstar Freewheels – Has yours gone bang?
Mines in a box ready to send back when ive got the time. its a trizoid enduro hub and its started creaking badly when pressure is put on it , its only 6 months old .only reason im slow to return it is the front wheel has been written of in a crash and ive replaced them with hope hoops so im in no hurry . I will sell them on when ive got them repaired. I should of brought hopes in the first place it was a very expensive mistake buying superstars….Posted 4 years agoB_LeachMember
I’ve been putting in at least 100 miles a week on a superleggera hub for well over two years now. Other than a couple of snapped spokes, they’ve not skipped a beat.
I did accept superstars hit and miss reputation, and didn’t come a cropper. They were the best spec for the money at the time!

I’ve split three Switch alloy freehubs, they just shear. S* gave me a steel one (which is made of pig iron its so heavy) ‘cos they wouldn’t accept it was a shit design of hub. Seen a few Tesla’s exploded too. Mind you, I’m having to think hard for a brand I’ve not broken or seen broken first hand. Everything is shit, really.Posted 4 years agojohnnystormSubscriber
My alloy FH cracked, but it was on a second hand pair of wheels. Replaced with steel. I can’t feel overly upset as it was a 30 second job to replace and I can’t be certain of the use/abuse they’d had before I got them. The pair I’ve owned from new (~2 years) are still going fine.Posted 4 years agohazza123Member
I cracked my freehub on the trizoid dh hub and could do with replacing it before long, not currently in a rush as have stuck a spacer over the cracked part and adjusted mech accordingly. Will a steel freehub of any sort fit? as i don’t currently fancy forking out 60 quid on one of their freehubs, bearings in both wheels need replacing though.Posted 4 years ago
