I see a lot of this too, people not picking up the poo in the dark because they can get away with it. No excuse, most now carry a phone that is also a torch. Just got back from my dog walking me, I always pick up the poo especially in the winter because then I can warm my hands on the bag.
Reading this at 6.30am I am glad I am not the only one who gets up with the lark. With me it all started with being a carer, So tired at night I started going to bed at nine and up at four or five in the morning but I actually prefer it, I think?

I bet if the hub was an older one that was oil lubed this may not have happened? One other point to mention who ever had the bike before had put one of the anti turn...
I am reading at the moment the Penguin book of the bicycle and in the book it refers to a Victorian news paper, the 'English Mechanic' and here is a link to one of the news papers to read. Just look at the bikes
