    Pedals (SuperStar Components) - Opinions? - [o]

    I was thinkin of getting some flats for my Flite.
    I like the 'looks' of the Superstar pedals, but wanted some input as to their performance.
    Does anyone have some personal and/or anecdotal experience with these?



    Also, please note the poll - Personally, I'm leaning towards the Black w/ Red Pins.

    Requisite pics of the bike for comparison:




    Any other opinions/comments welcome.
    Thanks!
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Superstar will not ship to the USA. The notice does not show up until you try to check out, and even then is is easy to miss.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    if that's true, then that is really shitty ...salesmanship /discrimination?

    this is from their shipping page: ( http://superstar.tibolts.co.uk/shipping.php )

    UK - Free postage on all products
    Europe - 2.50
    Rest of the world - 5
    Why do they exclude the US from the rest of the world?
    AND a country where MTB was born and has more MTB'rs!
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    Because of insurance.

    Go through the checkout and see.

    I pointed out the issue to them ~2 years ago. They have not changed the shipping info.

    Thanks shig,
    I will call on monday - and ask..

    What's the 'insurance' issue?

    Regardless, this seems like bad business - not changed in TWO-YEARS!!!

    Anyone got some alternatives? - preferably one's that don't hate on the USA :/

    They do not have liability insurance for doing business in the US.

    You have to ask them.

    Many insurance companies charge very high premiums for the (lawsuit happy) US. Remember the post about the French tour company refusing a US client?

    I like the Nukeproof Proton in black... not many colour options though.
