Get superstar nano, from superstar, oddly.

Although the can be cheaper at carboncycles.cc

Worst flats I have owned. Superstar Nanos are loads better.

You are entitled to your opinion, even if it is misguided.

I have carboncycles Nano copies on my HT and MG1's on my FS, prefer the Nano's but the MG1's are spot on too.

Wellgo Mg1 - light, cheap, grip well, good bearings.

MG1 are great for the price.

Shimano Saints are my fav though.

I'm going for a set of the Superstar Ultra Mags, same dimensions as Nano's but quite a bit lighter than even the Ti axled version (or MG1's) and for £50 odd seem reasonably priced too

Wellgo MG1 you cant kill them the bearings just refuse to die, just when you think they are dead undo the end cap fill it with grease screw it back on and hey presto they are smooth again for another few months. Some people find the pins a bit short but just buy some longer ones on ebay dead easy to swap around till you find the best grip for your shoes.
