    What's the deore hub you're looking at? I've just had a 135 fixed/free wheel built. Surly ultra new hub on an A119, £150 ish.

    Love the frame and colours, I was tempted to get one of these a few years ago.

    Wow, that's a good price. Yeah, these were the other rims I was considering but the LBS put me off suggesting the A319s as they had eyelets and were stronger. Very tempted to just order those 460s though.

    I'm looking for some wide, strong rims for my commuter. Is there anything similar to the Mavic A319 but a touch lighter? They seem a bit hefty.

    +1 for keeping it simple, that sounds a good way of doing it.

    Nice idea, tentatively in for this. Although, I was in for the photography but only managed 2 or 3 entries. This should be a little easier though, I won't have to leave the house :) I've been trying to draw more this year so this would be a good incentive.

    Cheers for that, I think I'll stick with it, I can't be doing with the hassle returning it. So long as it turns for a good few miles then jobs a good un.

    I've bought an new rear wheel for my MTB, the hub was advertised as Deore. The hub I received is an M475, I thought Deore would be M525 but Evans are advertising the M475 as Deore, I'm confused. Is there much difference between these hubs, enough to warrant returning the wheel? An old post on STW suggests the M475 is a lower range hub and the seals aren't as good.
    Any ideas?
    Cheers

    I saw one of these for the first time tonight (they aren't so common in brum). The guy was riding behind me with the green light flashing about on the floor right in front of me. Really distracting and annoying, I let him past in the end to get rid.

    Seems that pia have shut down their UK servers whilst they figure out the implications of this bill. Connecting to any of the UK servers now puts you on NL servers instead.

    Just discovered the SJCAM 4000, it looks like it could fit my needs. I'm guessing the case is for underwater fully submerged usage. Any ideas how the camera would fare without the case for commuting?
