That's a picture taken a few days ago. I've replaced the Nexus hub/wheel to an Alfine with Sun rim, the saddle shown is a Koobi mountain bike saddle until I decide on a replacement for the factory Sonoma 155 saddle that broke. The pedals are Shimano 324, Ergon handgrips added recently, the generator/front light/rear light are original and still work great. I've made little changes here and there, but it looks very much like it did when I first bought it.

Overall, I love the bike even though it has had a few issues, it's at 4600+ miles, just under two years of use. It's a good commuter bike that works for my short 17 mile round trip commute.
I get compliments on it all the time... well... because it's a damn good looking bike.
