Superstar rotors yay or nay ?
Seeing the way the floating ones had worn on a guide’s bike, I’d say no… Extremely uneven wear and they’d not lasted well.
I’ve got one of the standard ones though and it’s been fine- it was suspiciously identical to an old Tektro rotor I had. Then again the other one from that pair had its bolt holes drilled offcentre.Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Just as with most Superstar products, they’re a generic Far Eastern product made for them by someone else. No bad thing per se, but you’ll see these rotors elsewhere under other brand labels as well. If you googled A2Z and Teppan Yaki for instance, it would give you links to the same rotors under other brand names, and I think I’ve seen them under the Clarks and XLC brands too.
Personally I’m less of a fan of the wave design, but if you like the look of them then go for them, they’ll function just fine.Posted 4 years agodavewalshMember
I bought a Vibe one and it was a different thickness from one side of the rotor to the other by about 0.05mm, under braking you could feel it snatching so I sent it straight back. So it’s a nay from me.
To add a bit of balance, a mate of mine has been using Flame’s for a couple of years without any problems.Posted 4 years ago
