Hub dynamo/light combo ... is this going to work?
I have a bike with a Sturmey-Archer X-FDD 6v/3w dynamo hub. I have just ordered a Busch & Müller Lumotec N2 Switched Headlight (which is supposed to be the hub-dynamo-specific light).
I don't really know what I'm doing with the electronics. All I knew is that that was the one reasonably priced light specifically for hub dynamo that was going to "look" right with the Dutch "Oma" style bike I'm putting together for my wife.
A. Any alarm bells about why this combo should not work? (for example, I read somewhere, about a different light, that you /had/ to have a rear light wired in there or you would blow up the front)
B. Tail light? I'd like to have one also connected to the dynamo, but I'm thinking of just going with a battery-powered blinky, since I don't have the bux for the standlight version, and I don't want the rear to go dark when my darling wife stops in the dark at an intersection or to adjust her cargo of wine and baguettes and small dogs, or whatever.
C. Will the light come with a wire that will attach to the electro-port-thingy on the hub?
D. Any other advice, oh Masters of Technology?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
