As you can imagine though, this brought on a headache.. But Hope was restored because Hope UK do an adaptor for £8.

You can't really rate a set of wheels on the colour, fella. That was unimportant. What was important was getting the killer wheels on there that it deserves, and I've done that (colour be damned).

SRS, riding loose ball hubs actually sucks.
Loved Hope brakes. I remember my hope mono 6Ti pots. 6 pistons on each wheel and came in at a cool £300 each. That didnt even include the rotors.

Be grateful you arent into MTB though. The cost of MTB hobby build is absolutely crazy. I recently spent £290 on SPank Pedals.

A possible solution to your missing O-ring could be O-ring cord. cut your own, bond it with essentially super-glue. (whatever that may be called in the UK)

My apologies if you had already considered this.

Just looking at Hope pedals. Got a few of their components now. They're expensive though (£120).

I did, however, buy this earlier.



I was a bit wary, but I found numerous reviews that said it's excellent and it only weighs 590 grams. Compared to well over a KG for the 4130 cro mo cranks on there. Needed this of course..



Which was a PITA but at least it will have race cranks on it now

Lucy - cleared. Only allowed 27 here lol.

Vape stuff !

I am hesitating whether I should buy a used Nintendo DS from Amazon. I know it is old but I am just nostalgic and want to play it. Before ordering though, I want to ask you is it worth it. The price range is between $40-80, and it comes with charger and everything. The thing that I am most concerned about is whether I can play it with the new games, or they won't work?

Get a DS2. I got this pack last week for £75, they should run you $80 out there.



I love mine, I use it for relaxing in bed. It runs all original DS games.



Ordered those last night. Made in Lincolnshire

Amazon UK. £74.99 with Prime shipping. I also bought Super Mario 3D Land (£13.99) and then a used version of Mario Golf World Tour for £12.50.

Apparently there is a way to use an SD card to exploit it too. The tool for it costs mere pounds. I have not done mine yet. A mate said he would do it for me when I am feeling better and back home.

My one is on Amazon too if you prefer platforming to racing.

U.S

https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list...&condition=all

And they have the Zelda one out there too, which was my fave in colour but stupid money here in the UK

https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-list...&condition=all

There's an Amazon Warehouse used like new one there for $81

Had a rough few weeks, so I decided to treat myself to a new watch, a Seiko SNXS79k. I own a G-shock GA-110, which is actually a pretty good looking watch, but I wanted something a bit more dressy and casual for schooldays. Also, I have really small wrists and G-shocks are massive. So I bought this. Good automatic watch with a good, in-house movement at like £70, and a bit more suitable for my wrist at only 37mm.

Also bought some NATO straps, which are a bit more casual than metal straps, and easily interchangeable, which I like. You can easily mix-and-match these with your outfit.

Nice Seiko, I own a Citizen Eco Drive myself but I do like Seiko
