From my last tour and 400 in Belgium (left the sleep system and bar bag at the HQ for the brevet).

This photo is my phone wallpaper. It was from the last day, riding west on the Belgian coastline towards Dunkirk and the ferry.

People often remark that it looks like a parachute hanging off the back but it works 💁‍♂️

if there is a generous chamfer on the left end of the axle, that usually signifies it is a ball-locking hub.

Cycled to RIAT at RAF Fairford - nearby campsite viewpoint; was there for around 6hrs so binos, & Aldi chair came in handy.

One SRF-5 hub ordered. I'll wait until it gets here before ordering shifter and sprocket because I still am not sure if it's the closer ratio hub or the wide. The site has both shifters with little indication of hich one is for which. I have to order a new seal for the Alfine from SJS so sprocket, nuts, anti-turn washers, shifters etc can come at the same time.

I see no mention of which class of EN ISO 20471 is required, but may have missed it...

Mesh front, solid back, class 2

my method was to tighten the locknuts until the bearings start binding, then back off a quarter of a turn, put the wheel into a fork and clamp the skewer. only very tiny adjustments were needed after that to make it spot on.

Is it not a case that the insurance that AUK has to cover AUK, requires riders to also be insured?

no only if they are non UK residents. My understanding is that it's a last resort thing if the rider has no other cover. If they did do away with it everyone could use CUK's (which I'm also in and is very good; also includes legal assistance)
