i use only sapim db spokes from danscomp.
it's kinda funny to get all their bmx catalogs in the mail though. i always have to look through them and am tempted to order some vans slip-ons and...

but without the carrots.
music can be calming.
i've decided track pedals are better for me and the kind of riding i do wearing sneakers. road pedals are nearly the same, just slightly heavier.
