Bike Candy

12 January 2010

Ok, not really bike candy but I am looking for a practical solution to lights.  I have been reading about dynamo hubs – these are new to me and I have been dreaming of dynamo lighting for a while.  I remember the sidewall dynamos well as I had one back in England.  I would be left in the dark whenever I came to a stop so always remembered to have a battery powered rear light switched on at the same time.  I was surprised to learn that they now make dynamo hubs.  I am looking at the Schmidt Nabendynamo supplied by Peter Whites.  I have yet to decide on the lighting system.  I am tempted by Dahon BioLogic ReeCharge.  This attaches to the dynamo and provides a charging station for USB devices.  This could be useful for both the iPhone and the Edge 705 on the longer rides.  I wonder if anyone has experience of this.
