    Just bought a Nean front and rear light set along with a bottle dynamo. No cable?

    Hi all, Just bought a Nean front and rear light and although there is cable to connect the Dynamo to the front light, there is no cable supplied to run from the front (master) light to the rear (slave) light? Both front and rear lights have two spades each which are supposed to couple them up...

    Move a dynamo hup to another wheel. Cost?

    Servicing a Shimano hub dynamo

    I've noticed a very slight wobble on the front wheel of my touring bike, which appears to be due to the bearings on the Dynamo. Has anyone ever tried to deal with such a problem, and where would you start? I have been looking for tips online but videos seem to focus on servicing the dynamo...

    Rear Dynamo light not turning off

    I have a set of Busch & Miller dynamo lights on a new Genesis Tour de Fer touring bike. Only been out on the bike once so far with the lights on and the rear light didn’t turn off when I switched the front off which then drained the power I’m new to dynamo lights so is this the norm or do I...

    2.4w dynamo hubs

    Anyone know if a dynamo hub with an output of 2.4w can power a decent set of front and rear lights or are they just suitable for front light only and would need a hub with an output of 3w to properly power front and rear lights .

    Dynamo setup questions.

    I figured it is getting close to the right time of year for all the lighting questions, so I would start one off. I am finally going to move over to an inexpensive dynamo setup, although I might run some battery lights as well when I go out into the countryside. My main use is daily commuting...

    I want to add a dynamo to the front wheel of my Ribble CGR bike. Currently the wheels I have are Mavic AllRoad, 24 spoke.

    Waterproof seal for dynamo connector

    What is the CC view on protecting a dynamo connector against water ingress. There is a small gap where the wire enters the top of the connector. Is sealing this with PVC tape sufficient or should I try some form of adhesive? Or am I paranoid about water damage? This is an SP connector but I...

    Soldering dynamo wiring to LED lights?

    After 3 years of reliable service, the exposed wiring that leads from my front dynamo lamp to the rear (B+M Secula) LED light became brittle and snapped in two. The exposed wiring is really thin copper, I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did! Road vibrations have killed it at last. I had to...

    Dynohub for my Delta

    For some time I've thought it'd be good to have dynamo-powered lights on both trikes. Yesterday I completed the first of several wheel-builds that've been in the planning. And I'm a little disappointed; not with the end result of day one - no, the built-up wheel looks fine - but with how long it...
