Received a new set of rotors from Superstar today, my first purchase with them. I was most surprised to find a bag of Haribo in the packaging.

Now is this a smart marketing ploy, a mistake by the person in dispatch (who's still hunting for his afternoon treat), or a 'sweetener' to make up for the future support that I've heard so many bad things about? 8)

Hopefully it's the former.

They've sent me Haribo with everything I've ordered, apart from my wheels. Can't go wrong, unless you fall off your bike and your new spiky rotors get you!

Matt, superstar are just trying to get you to go back to their house to see their puppies. 8)

I'm not complaing about the sweets, but a bigger bag would go down a treat (pun intended) with future purchases!

Anyhoo, back to they Ryvita and hummus, sigh.

So who sends out the best goodies then? This could be a dealmaker.
