I got one of those hubs too. Feels exactly like almost every other new dynamo hub. They are only smooth when they have intertia. I think it's gonna be solid. My good hubs are shutter precision which is not super high end but they have worked wonderfully for me. This will probably be similar.

Those aren't mine. I would build them but love cr18s when I build. My 52 is actually a reissue from 1998.

Modern Campagnolo wheels that will probably end up on a modern-ish bike. Best wheel box I have ever seen!
Also, first new wheels I have ever bought not attached to a bike.

yes, I just acquired one on a donor bike that I got , mainly just for the wheels but it came with some other nice jewels like the Cyclone GT RD that will end up on my touring bike.

I got a pair of Modolo levers (plus a bonus spare hood), spokes, and a new frame.



Just a sneak peek at the frame:

Got fed up with my phone in my pocket impediing leg movement slightly:




It's a cheapy (£21) from Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
And I bought the Carradice Cyclo loops earlier.




It's just big enough for a phone (Moto G6) and a camera (Lumix DMC-ZX1).
