    Two real beauties, there, holiday. Interesting how the 1999 model has the modern mondrian-esque DT graphic and the older, gothic head badge. Not sure if I've seen them mixed like that on a JT. I'm...

    Whatwolf, that is a very nice set of wheels you built up! I'd be on these in a heartbeat if I didn't already have three sets of 650B wheels.

    Title says it all. If you have a Ti BB that fits the bill, I'm interested. I also posted in the For Trade thread. I have a top of the line Phil Ti-Mg 116mm BB I could trade if you'd prefer a trade.

    No need for a rectifier if only powering the lightbulb. A rectifier would be needed to charge the battery, however. I'm pretty sure some modern generator hubs don't have rectifier circuitry, either.
