The GT, with the new crankset & a Union BB dynamo

The GT after I stuffed a Union BB dynohub (from my random junk pile; I got it cheaply from a friend a couple of years ago as part of a set that came with a halogen (which immediately was converted to led) headlight I wanted, and only now needed to use it (because I don’t have any disc dynohubs, but need to be able to ride this bike when it’s dark outside) and defrenchified the crankset after the BB started to creak (on the cheap; the 386 crankset here cost me less than a new square taper BB would have cost – so now the Stronglight TS-3 is sitting back in the basement while I decide whether I want to put it onto the Trek instead of the 38/48 cargo double that I’ve got on it now).

I still haven’t brazed the rear brake mount on; that has to wait for me to recase the brake levers and put drop bars (lauterwasser bars are nice, but THEY AREN’T PROPER DROP BARS) onto the machine like G-d Himself Intended.
