    Thanks for confirming, was a bit late.

    Just realized that I think the cables with plugs are the ones for the back light, and the ones with no plugs the ones going to the hub.
    So longish cable from lamp goes to hub dynamo, back light goes onto plugs.

    If none of that makes sense that either means I should be in bed, or you need to watch videos/let someone else do it.

    You put the ends of the cable into C and crimp C around the cable. Don't use to much force, the little tabs can break.
    Then you plug those silver things into the golden things.
    If D is a soft tube, as in heat shrink, put it over the cable before attaching C, when you have plugged the stuff together slide it over the joint, heat it slightly, it shrinks and protects the connection.

    Make sure you have all the cables where you want them on the bike and in the length you need them before you do this.
    I think B are things that go around the cable into your back light somehow.

    Our cooker broke, finances didn't allow for the electrician to install 30a to then get a nice electric oven with gas cooker.
    The new, cheap combi thing from oranier has a better oven than the one before, but heat still only comes from below, you need to keep a tray under your cakes, no grill means no crust etc.
    It's ok to use, but limiting.

    Not sure if another rim that low profile, wideish and tubeless (but don't know how tubeless ready the tb14 are in reality) is available.
    There's the ride trace r 20 and ambrosio evolution, but both are higher, and black with machined sidewall.

    This is not a bad place for selling geared bikes, but you'll need to give it more than 10 minutes.
    And more, and higher resolution pictures will help.
    Also how many gears, what kind of fork exactly etc.

    Exactly that. They're shit.
    Had 3 of this model, from 15lux up to the brightest one. Every single one did the fall off and rattle around thing.

    Edit: talking about b&m lyt.

    Whereas I agree that Geneva is probably the city to stay in (also Montreux on the other side of the lake is amazing) I would also go to la Chaux-de-Fonds and Biel/Bienne.
    La Chaux-de_Fonds has the Musée international d'horlogerie and the Omega Museum is in Bienne.
    Both (haven't been to La Chaux-de-Fonds) are very different to Geneva, more like small industrial (as far as small swiss towns can be industrial) towns than international centres, and the whole region is beautiful. Could well be a nice round trip taking in the Watch Valley, might even be fun by train, if you go by train, try to use one of the ships that are part of public transport.

    Expensive yes, but those replaceable threads are nice.

    It's the perfect spot for a pump.
    Even on that dry red surface it will be covered in filth, and make you even happier about your puncture.
    Does the frame bag say Vaude?
    Maybe they should stick to panniers.
