Is it nuts to buy a $7...
We'll see. It just arrived recently, have not connected it up yet.
I have to say, one of the three pictures in the top level web page (the one with the yellow bike) is not of this dynamo, and the way the dynamo I received is switched on is different. I should have noticed that inconsistency in the pics..
The dynamo I got is, however, the one on the wiki page. So, to turn it on you have to pull it. Which I think will make it hard to turn on without dismounting unless its on the front.
The idea of a dynamo hub sounds better all the time. Paying $50 for a bottle dynamo didn't make much sense to me either.
Need to start working again and making money..
