    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...

    Dynamo hub and wheel build

    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. Rather than rebuilding my wheel, I am considering buying a new Mavic rim (£25) with 32 spoke holes to match up with a 32 spoke Shimano DH-UR705 dynamo hub (£100) and having...

    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...

    Installing a dynamo hub & lights on the Charge Plug commuter

    I've been looking at dynamo powered lights for a while and yesterday I finally ordered some bits. I'm a pretty competent mechanic but having never fitted a dynamo before I thought I'd run through my plans to see if I'm about to do anything dim or make my life harder than it need be :okay: With...

    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...

    Can Somebody Please Explain Dynamo Lighting To Me?

    As a year round rider, I'm starting to look at 'better' lighting options. So far these are battery driven which I use on my road bikes. My commuter (Boarman CX Team, of 2015 vintage), currently uses 2 x SMART lights on the front, each powered by 2 x AA rechargeables, and 2 x Cateye LD-600's on...
