Well, the Kona commuter is rockin' hard now, and I've gotten into that rut where I constantly want the next cool thing. So . . .
Since lighting is an honest-to-god issue for me (I ride 10 of my 15 miles in unlit conditions and it's dark out there in "god's country"), I've been considering a new light.
A) Spend $85.00 and get a nice 10W halogen setup with rechargeable battery
B) Spend $50.00 and get a high-powered emitter from NiteHawk but I know nothing about them. (Anyone? Anyone?)
C) get a dynamo wheel (Shimano hub type) and light set-up for roughly $200 and feel all cool about generating my own power, not having to use batteries, etc.
Does anyone have experience with dynamo hubs and their impacts on your ride? Do the 3, 6W halogen lights that work with them produce a lot of light, or are they simply like CatEye lights without the need for batteries?
I've got a 5 LED blinker on my handlebar which is great for making me seen, but I'm more or less "using the force" on the dark sections of my ride to and from work.
Any input would be appreciated!
