jameso » they dim at off-road climbing speeds, say under 8mph. They then get really bright when descending.I'd sort of thought that might be a problem. I guess that means two lighting systems. A small AA-batteried light would be good enough for uphill speeds and could be switched off to preserve battery life when speeds increase. More weight of course.......
Anyone use a dyno hub & front light?
as i said - i dont think itll make much difference , the day i was hit i was riding a bike covered like this with reflective pish and a Maxx D outfront plus a dinotte 200L and a joystick on my head PLUS a hi viz vest - boy just didnt look. but its still a concern for me when buying new lights .
like the look of them B & M ones actually , easy enough to wire in a rear stand light to them ?
The bright-dim variation of a dyno hub seems like it'd bug me in the same way. Any electronics /headlights available to overcome this?
Think the B&M Luxos and Exposure Revo both have a proper battery, rather than a capacitor, to power the standlight. The B&M also has some elaborate gubbins that gives it a wider beam at low speeds. See review here:
Trail_rat, yes, they're dead easy to wire up with a rear light, and if you get a B&M one they all have built-in reflectors as well as a standlight. There's even one that acts like a brake light and gets brighter as you slow down.
