So i've got a shimano dynohub & a schmidt E6 to go with it - I'm lovin it!!
I had it running on my bianchi, no problem, and then switched it all over to an older miyata frame. BUT when i did that, the light no longer worked! All I got was lots of resistance when rolling the tire, with the switch off or on (and no light was coming out).
To fix this, I reversed the wiring (just at the hub-contact end, not the end that goes into the E6), which worked.
But I don't understand! Why would I need to reverse the wires if it worked previously with the same setup, but on a different bike? The only thing I can think of is that the Bianchi had a carbon fork, and the Miyata has a steel one - could that (un)ground the setup and force the switch?
I just want to understand what was up with it, any thoughts?
