    I'm not sure if this is serious or if it's a joke that's gone straight over my head.

    I do. I'm pretty certain I have dynamo hub lights on my Brompton and on my town bike.

    Very glad, however, not to have bottle dynamo lights any more.

    I have a dynamo, with another dynamo attached to it to provide light to be able to see to activate the first dynamo.

    I remember mine from yesterday evening, it was on my front wheel when I put my bike in the garage.......................are you trying to tell me something? I haven't looked this morning:unsure:. I wouldn't want to lose it now, it was a Christmas gift to me from my parents in 1950 something.
    I have a socket at home for charging my 'phone, it charges on its own while I'm out cycling:okay:.

    Reelights. Always on, always there. Very impressed. Doesn't provide enough to charge a phone though.

    I'm considering switching the commuter to dynamo for the winter, bloody expensive though.
