    Had Superstar Nanos on all my bikes and they're by far and away the best pedals I've ever had, I've not tried the Hope ones though.

    The Hopes look better IMO. But then having said that they cost double the price, so that is understandable. I just want something very light, on sealed bearings, with bloody good grip to the foot. When riding I wear Vans (completely flat) so studs bite into them well.

    I bought some MKS Grafight but the traps on them are yellowed (they are from 1998 or so). I could retrobrite them with peroxide but I just upgraded the bike (better custom wheels etc) and now they look kinda odd.

    So yeah open to suggestions guys and girls. Something purple please :)

    Decided to push it a bit. I just hope no one gets in my way.

    110 PSI tyres and that sort of gearing means really fast...

    The Bigger, Blacker Box.

    And the expansions I didn't already have.

    Cambridge Audio S30 speakers. Not the greatest speakers ever, but they're not bad at all.

    Ignore the mess, that's just for show.

    Hopeful an Eachine E011C can handle some Racerstar 8520 motors, if successful I'll transplant it into the frame kit above. Failing that it'll be the Furibee F36 under the knife!

    Needed a cheap but serviceable mouse for my laptop. Would've gone wireless, but given I only use my laptop at a desk the cost wasn't worth it.

    Mavic Crossride 650b wheelset. Would have got something a bit fancier, but between a "new customers" email code and "pay day promotion" I managed to bag these new for £135... which is a bargain for a set of 2017/18 tubeless-ready wheels with convertible hubs (that actually include all the adaptors in the box too!). under 1900g is pretty good for a cheap set, too. Will probably just become my expendable commuting wheels when I re-stock the coffers and can get some nice Stan's or something, but they'll get me rolling ASAP.

    I have two :D. One old-school terminal keyboard converted to USB, and a regular PS2 board. I plan to add a bluetooth module and internal battery to the terminal board and a need a Soarer's Converter cable for the regular one - few of my machines have PS2 any more...

    If Unicomp did an all black one rather than black and grey I'd have one by now, but sadly they don't.

    All current Ryzen boards have PS/2 IIRC.

    Pretty sure mine hasn't got a PS/2 socket.

    I don't have a Ryzen board though :grin:. Most full-size boards still have a PS/2 port, but the only PCs I now have in the house are a Thin-MiniITX based system and a laptop :thumb:. TBH the SDL converter cable will be handy anyway - if I get one with Soarer's Converter built-in it will do a lot more than just convert the keyboard's SDL connection to USB (macros, function layers, key remaps, etc IIRC).
