Anyone using dynamo lights for a commuter?
Cheapo Shimano dynamo hub/roller brake combo, B+M Cyo front and a B+M standlight rear.
Gives a bright steady light to ride by but a high-speed flicker from the front which really helps visibility. The rear is very bright (friends have commented on it) but I also back it up with a flasher.
Don’t bother with any switches – just plug it in in September and unplug it in April.
My last cheap hub lasted 8 years of aquatic commuting.Posted 3 years agoSTATOMember
Have been running a B&M Cyo and Schmidt Edelux for years, great things. Just fitted a B£M Cyo Premium to another bike, supposedly brighter (i suppose it is but the standard one is pretty good) but not sure i like the beam pattern as much, seems very susceptible to angle adjustment.
Whatever you get, dynamo is really the way to go for commuting. Makes you realise just how useless 1200L MTB lights are on road.Posted 3 years ago
