My current lighting set-up is a Light and Motion Seca 400, and I'm getting tired of unhook my battery pack after every ride home to re-charge and having them die after a year, requiring me to sink $125 into a new overpriced battery (beware of L&M, their stuff's nice, but they can be gougy).
I've been looking at Shimano dynamo hubs compatible with disc brakes, and true to Shimano form, I'm having a hard time finding another brand that offers what appears to be excellent quality and durability for the price. Yeah, SON is amazing, but their hubs are also amazingly expensive. I'm not interested in entry level dynamos.
Specifically, my current line-up is the Nexus, Alfine, DH-3D70, DH-3D71 and DH-3D72 (the last three are disc compatible versions of the 3N70, 3N71 and 3N72, if you have them). Anybody have any experience with these hubs or advice on which to buy?
The other problem I'm having related to this is finding a prebuilt wheel with these hubs already laced. Anyone have any ideas about how to make this happen if I don't want to buy everything to lace my own hub?
