Now geared for the shops, not the track.

the stow-away had a rather stern first gear for
a bike with such a terrible riding pozzie.
so today 
I received a Sturmey-Archer 22 tooth cog from the UK
and put it on.

already had changed the front crankset
for a NOS cottered set from Ephraim.
the old one was 48T 
and REALLY rusty.
the new one is a much gentler 44T.

you can see how much bigger the old one was
by the amount of clearance.

and here she is.
used to be 48-18, now 44-22.
even easier to hop on and burble.
tootling is easy too.
think I need to shorten the gear cable
