I live in fear of this day.


#1542

If the nipples aren’t rounded to shit, building/unbuilding wheels is a pleasant job imo. Therapeutic.


#1543

That’s probably true if you don’t do it for a living, and if you happen to have an extra 650b dynamo wheel laying around which you can ride while your other one is en route to Taiwan.


#1544

Did someone here buy one of the e-bike IQ-X lights? If so, how did that turn out? What was the diff? Am I making this up?


#1545

Looks like bike rumor installed the velogical and they’re going to review it soon


#1546

GTFO with facebutt links. Real internet or screenshot plz.


#1547

Why is a bottle dynamo interesting? I guess they all work in their shitty way. I don’t see why this would be a revolution just because it is on the rim.


#1548

Pluses: Super light, zero drag when not engaged.
Minuses: it’s still a bottle dynamo.


#1549

Is a normal hub + this bottle dynamo that much lighter than a dynohub? Seems doubtful.


#1550

The appeal is not having to invest in a new wheel.


#1551

But who is buying an expensive modern bottle dynamo who doesn’t relish the idea of building a sweet new wheel?


#1552

I think single bottle dynamo solutions are a bit dated.



#1553

Can you mount all of these together in series, like a centipede? If so I’m in.


#1554

I want to see a setup like some crazy offroad jeep with a million aftermarket lights, but on one of those camo fatbikes.


#1555

I can see wealthy roadies who love buying arcane technology using it turn their bike into a winter trainer with zero drag when light isn’t needed. I guess someone is buying these things.


#1556

So I bid on and won a 6v 1.5w Alfine hub. Didn’t bother to read the description until I had already won, whoops. Will that reliably power a Cyo or will it be too under-powered? If it’s not up to snuff I’ll put it on my pickup bike and yolo.


#1557

I have one with an Eyc and a Secula and it seems to work fine, except for me I think it takes a slightly higher speed for it not to flash. Blakey has one with a Cyo (I’m pretty sure) and reports it works fine.


#1558

Yeah, mine is fine, there’s a 1.5w light out now also. But I’d only get that if you were likely to be at low speeds a lot and might suffer from flicker.

#1559

Are you running a secula as well Blake? I’m thinking this will go on my future townie with a safety pizza/riv triangle dangling from the saddle instead of a rear light.


#1560

Cyo premium plus a secula, yeah.
