    A review of PedalCell, an impressive new rim dynamo

    I just finished testing of the PedalCell, a new rim dynamo that is designed to charge USB devices while you ride. I was impressed by how much charge it delivered. If you tour with USB-chargeable devices, this dynamo will keep them in electricity without requiring you to plug them into wall...

    Dynamo 2021?

    Anyone planning to do it in any way? I don't think southwark cyclists are doing the transport back this year - 2nd year they haven't been for obvious planning reasons.

    Running lights with a dynamo

    My front hub was on its last legs (sic) and I found a half decent dynamo hub for what I think was a more than fair price. Having built it into a wheel I now need some lights and my eye has fallen on the box of semi-redundant battery LED lights that are just waiting for a new lease of life...

    Dynamo Hub Lights

    Hi all, My bike has a dynamo hub on the front wheel. It came with a set of lights, but I have no idea what they were. I've misplaced them. They weren't very bright anyway, so I'm in the market for a new set. But I don't really know what I am looking at. I was thinking of spending about £40 for...

    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?

    How much would it cost as I want to keep my rigida supersonic rims. I use them off road every day. The rim is as true today as it was 10 years ago. Magnificent rim.

    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...

    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 .

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...

    Waterproof seal for dynamo connector
