Dynamo hub and lights on a road bike - repost from Commuting forum
Hi all, this is a repost from the commuting forum. I hadn't seen this section as I have never posted here before - apologies for that.
I have just purchased a Shimano dynamo hub laced to a Mavic CXP22 road rim and am looking for advice/ideas/inspiration for the final lighting set up.
The wheel will be going on my Peugeot road bike commuter build, which is being built in readiness for my increased commute from next year (up from 1.5km to 13km).
I am particularly interested in lighting options for the front, as I am happy to use a blinky on the back and maybe run 2 separate front lights from the hub dynamo - is this possible/recommended? Maybe one light on the fork crown for distance illumination and another near the skewer for pot hole avoidance.
Budget-wise, value is more important to me than actual price, particularly as I got the wheel for an unbelievable deal.
Thanks all in advice for any advice, or if you can link me through to any relevant threads.
