They are not real Sato..
"With design isnpired by famous Japanese brand Babyface Sato....."
The price is good, though if you can keep it low....
The Satos go up to US$450+ but they are really something...
The have roller bearings at the levers and the quality, feeling and adjustability is just great.
I don't know about the ones on Egay :O They could be good...

Couple pics of my Satos

:O No idea....
What I'd do is: Go to the seller's history and find who bought those rearsets for their bikes (not necessarily TLR -they fit on TLS, too- but also for other bikes) and send them an email through Ebay, asking about quality and if they're happy with their buy...
SOme of them, I'm sure, will reply...... You'll know then :thumbup

Silly question, but I've meant to ask that for a long time: how could rearsets cost $450? Whats the deal with them? What can you do with a $450 rearset that is attractive?

It is not a tricky question, maybe i just dont know what rearsets do and therefore I cant see a reason to upgrade them...

My guess is that they are usually lighter and you can adjust for comfortable. Is that right?

BLING BLING!!!!!!
Of course, not the intended purpose, but a side affect yes.

Rearsets come in 2 typical types, non-adjustable and adjustable. Typically you will find that across the board they weigh less and are stronger than stock and move the foot position up and back from stock. Additionally, some come equipped with bearings on the levers. You can also expect better grip than a stock rubber unit. Adjustable units also have the ability to give you more positions.

Rearsets were originally developed for club racers that turned standard bikes into racebikes, where the bike originally came with very low, very forward pegs that would contact the ground very easily.

You said you emailed them... and they said what?
Did you ask them if quality is good and if they're happy with what they bought?
:O
Perhaps dunkchamp55 can help you if he has decided to buy them off Ebay.....

Oh, you emailed the seller.... and he said "no" :O
Well, he's a moron.. If it fits a TLR it will fit a TLS, too....
I have the TLR Sato and they fit perfectly on my S :)
Now go to his feedback page, find who bought TLR or other rearsets from him and email THEM to find out if the thing is good or not....
