From where I stand, the hub of me

The photographs were taken at Soidinsuo swamp in Nuuksio on April 1st.

I commuted by bicycle today, using the new back wheel with a Nexus 8 gear hub (SG-C6001) and the new twist shifter which came with the wheel. It was great. It still feels surprising that the gear hub is silent. With the old hub there was noise coming from the gears all the time, especially when switching.
