It’s no secret that we’re big fans of hub-dynamos – they’re the best way to keep yourself and the road in front of you reliably lit-up. All our favourite bikes (Breezers, Viventes, Bromptons) either come with dynamos or offer them as an option.
We like em so much that we’ve sourced some very good value pre-built hub dynamo wheels - something we’ve been looking for since Shimano discontinued their 700c option. We’ve gone one better and have Shimano 3N80 hubs built into Alex Adventurers (26″) or Alex DM18′s (700c) for $250 for a complete wheel.
If you’re looking for a great value light to go along with your great value wheel, we’ve also now got the Busch and Muller Lyt (as pictured above) for $75 – a hub dynamo wheel and light together for $325 is the best price we’ve ever been able to achieve.
We’ve still got IQ Fly’s ($100), Cyo’s ($120) and Schdmidt Edelux ($220) lights as well, as well as the new Schmidt Wide-body Son Delux hubs (from $280) coming in soon.
