I was thinking some Wellgo MG-1's (magnesium). I don't want SPD's.

The Superstar Nano pedals are great...grippy, light and available in loads of colours.

They're good value too and always do well in the reviews.

My trip to the Peaks the other week reminded me why I don't do expensive pedals; low bottom bracket and rocks equal pedal strikes no matter how hard you try.

The final part of the puzzle!

Also.........looks like I'll be purchasing a pair of Superstar Nano's to replace the V8's.

I'm fairly confident that this is how i'd build an ARC. Its going to look awesome. May even tempt me back into a hardtail?

Chop chop, get it built and lets see some more pic's!!!

Still waiting for a 34.9 to 31.8 shim for my front mech. It's easier finding gold than one of these!

3 weeks later and I've finally got hold of the two stupid little plastic shims that have delayed the build! In the end I had to buy a NOS front mech from Merlin Cycles just to pinch the two shims!
