    new KB today. Logitech Illuminated. Happy with it but i remember the keys not having as much "travel" as they do so a little disappointed in that regard as i prefer laptop style keys. Old one had lost a few functions.. TAB, comma etc. Its great to have a comma key back after all these months of using ... in stead of commas. now i have to retrain my brain that commas exist!

    I dont have my own pics as i have never invested in a digi cam... perhaps i should.

    Loaded Dervish

    Not computer related but newish nonetheless. Bought myself a new longboard a little while ago, imported it from the USA but have hardly used it -

    - Loaded Dervish (Flex 2) http://www.loadedboards.com
    - Randal RII 180 Trucks
    - Stock Yellow Randal conical bushings (89a durometer) - also run some custom "karrot" conical bushings which are super-soft as they are cut out of Big Zig Pink wheels (77a durometer)
    - 75mm Oragatang "In Heat" wheels (80a durometer)
    - Bones Reds Bearings
    - Khiro shock pads

    This was the full order from the US layed out on the flooor, just under AUD$1000 worth - 2 dervishes on the right and a pintail far left :thumbup:

    [​IMG]

    The dervish is a bloody awesome board, so turny and awesome for commuting because of the drop through mounting of the trucks.

    The other board with the green wheels in one of the pictures is my old Sector 9 setup which I still use nearly everyday for uni. The sector 9 was my first longboard and it's a bit more portable than the dervish.

    Cheers Benny

    :leet: sweet as :leet:

    i have a loaded pintail myself (recognise it in my avatar?) and it gets the most use out of my quiver.

    flex4 with randal's 150mm. used to have zigs on it but now has purple tangs.
    thats quite a swag there! you ordered from muir? also which retro wheels did you get... zigs or bigzigs?

    i much prefer top-mounts myself but everyone in my crew who has the dervish loves it. you will too!

    Hey jboles,
    Yeah the Loaded Pintail's are awesome as well. My mate got the pintail out of the order and I've had a few rides and its just so good. With its size it would be the perfect board for everyday use. I just wish I'd known more about loaded and had got the loaded pintail for my first board over the sector 9 wings initially, but the sector 9 has been a good first board.

    Yeah I've ordered from Muir both times. Scott there has always taken care of me and given awesome prices on the setups and the postage. When we ordered I got the Orangatangs on my dervish with the raw Randal 180's, my other mate took the other dervish with the black Randal 180 trucks and Retro Big Zig lemons and the pintail was put together with Paris 150's and Zig Zag limes.

    Yeah the drop through has felt awesome so far. I was a bit reluctant at first and was gonna go with a vanguard, but so glad I decided to go with the drop through on the dervish. Its so much easier to push, you feel a bit more planted being lower to the ground and the flex is perfect. Good to see that there are some other longboarders on overclockers, Cheers Benny

    Love the bones reds
    I used to order all my stuff from skatewarehouse.com

    Great stuff there and hellish cheap

    Spent about $700 AUD there about 2 years back
    Forgot the name of the bearings I used, very nice though

    Cost me about $160 - they flew though

    The same programs you use for hard drives do the job.
