Superstar specialise in cutting out the middlemen in order to keep prices to a minimum. This Shimano/RaceFace-compatible ceramic bearing bottom bracket (Truvativ version also available) is a prime example.

The ABEC 5 hybrid ceramic bearings feel smooth to start with and the BB comes in a choice of four anodised colours.

Despite claims of longer life for ceramic bearings it started to creak after a few weeks of summer use. A couple of months on it still hasn’t completely died but we’d expect better of a ceramic setup, even at this price.
