Yeah, I know there's no actual rubbing friction, but you'd think that there'd still be some (minimal) force required to break each magnetic attraction. I mean there's no such thing as a free lunch, right?
I don't know how lux converts to lumens. Is that half as bright as my supposedly 900 (but really more like 4-500) lumen magicshine? A tenth?
Are you talking about the reelight?
Just looking for an affordable battery free lighting solution (to go along with my magicshine as a complement and to help me limp home if my battery dies) without replacing a wheel with a dynohub. Right now I have a fairly decent cateye (battery powered) as my backup, but was just looking into ways to move away from battery power. I suppose going with a dynohub isn't the worst idea in the world, but it looks like decent dynohubs with low drag start in the $100 range and then I'd still have to buy spokes, a rim, put it together and buy a light.
