Great video - it must have taken him ages! I really like the backup Alfine front hub in case the Rolhoff gives up the ghost.

I assumed it was a dynamo hub, but you might be right :)

I'm a Rohloff convert, so things like this whet my whistle ....

I'm pretty sure it's an Alfine Dynamo Hub, not an Alfine IGH. It's a touring bike after all, you don't want to worry about running out of batteries when you're crossing a whole country.
