    • "DT Swiss calculator and prowheelbuilder.com said 230mm for rear and 228-230mm for front. "

      That'll work great..you normally have a bit of movement either side, I think I use 228mm on the rear with no issues.
    • Hi, I want order Sapim Race spokes for Spank Race 33 24" rims and Hope pro 4 hubs (SS rear and 15mm front). It’s popular combination so maybe someone who was buyed it before can help me with spokes length? Online calculators suggest slightly different spoke lengths: DT Swiss calculator and prowheelbuilder.com said 230mm for rear and 228-230mm for front. Sapim calculator (I measured 472mm internal rim diameter and 2mm thickness) said 231mm for rear and 230-231mm for front. There is no 231mm in stock so I can order 232 for rear and 230-232 for front.
    • I would rather buy an older higher-end model instead of a newer mid-range one. In 2011 I bought a D7000 and sent it back in preference of an older D300s - I wanted a solid body (less plastic) and a pro-orientated set of controls. Likewise my first full-frame body was a D3, rather than buying a D600 or D750 which I could've done new. I bought a low shutter count D800 as a backup (probably equivalent to the 5d mk3) and it's amazing - again there are full frame options I could've bought new for the same money. It does depend a bit on what you want to do with it. All my kit is used outside in damp, dusty and/or cold environments. It gets knocked about, dragged about on the floor and generally abused, and so good construction and decent weather-sealing is important. I'm all about buying good secondhand stuff from people who've used it and looked after it well (bird watchers, studio photographers etc) - I think that usually represents good value for money, and I'm yet to have any problems.
    • I've solved my Lambda predicament!  After a load of faffing about and trawling endless sites online I finally found a wiring diagram for a UK EP3.  Swapped some wires across to different pins on different plugs and I now have two fully functioning Lambda and no engine light!  Picked up my bonnet too, bumpers will be ready for Monday so it'll be on the road that afternoon
