comment What is a good replacement for a cable end cap?
My experience with soldering is that most cables are impregnated with some kind of lubrification which makes soldering practically impossible. Would be the cleanest option if it worked, though...

comment lacing Alfine wheel, trailing spokes inside or outside hub flange
@armb: I didn't read Sheldon's explanation why you should use this pattern for coaster brakes. My understanding was that the spoke stress due to the braking force would determine the spoke pattern, an that should be the same for coaster brakes as for disc brakes.

The Alfine hubs can be fitted with discs (at least some of them).

comment Second wheel set for winter
As to the cassette: You do not only have to consider the number of cogs, but also the wear level. If you install a new cassette on your winter wheelset and have a cassette with some thousand kms on your summer wheelset, the chain will likely slip.
