Hey y'all, I'd like a generator system for lighting, but am also planning on a front hub motor. Rear hub motor isn't an option, because a Rohloff is also planned. Stokemonkey would be nice, but the price of this build is already getting bit high.
Anyway, had dismissed bottle generators, because I like using Big Apple balloon tires, and the sidewalls don't seem strong enough. Then I thought, hey! if I'm not using the rim for braking, ( disc brakes ) how about running the generator on the rim?
b&M dymotec uses a rubber roller, and you could rough up the rim to give traction.....
What do you think? Should i just go back to taking the tablets?
