Nice wheels 8) 8)
I have been looking at the superstar stuff for the singlespeed so will be interested to hear how you get on with them.
They both sound and look pretty bomb proof.

I've got a Hope 20+ i.s. to i.s. (HBIS20) in my spares box if you want it.
While I was rummaging about in shed to make sure I had one spare, I found a set of Hope disc hubbed wheels with WTB disc rims that I forgot I'd bought. :D
And the roof on shed is feckin leaking, baaastaard. :x

Okey doke, probably be about 7 ish before I get myself there.

Were you thinking of buying the Astra GTE for yourself or was it for a mate?
A climbing friend had one of those in silver, way back, always liked the look of them, but had my MK1 GTI so wasn't getting rid of it to get a GTE.

Spent last night cooking a batch load of meals, so benefitted from fresh lasagne tonight with no cooking. Fed then out the door dodging the showers. Threatened rain a few times but never came to anything. Tried the new costal path from Carnoustie to Arbroath but its still unfinished in places. Came home via backroads and bywaters stopping at Arbirlot to snap the waterfall.

Finding my riding mojo again after a few bad weeks, looking forward to Pitmedden. Got a set of Z-max tyres ordered from CRC to replace nobby nics on the STS. Just didn't look quite right with modern rubber. Plus I should be able to get the wheels on without squeezing them through the v-brakes now.
