    I would just do the adjustment starting from the lack of trust in what was done in the factory. The cones affect sideway play and their impact changes as you turn the cones and locknuts.

    I've been told by a certain blue-star member who seems to know a lot about Shutter Precision that Supernova Lights dynamos (dynamoes?) are in fact rebranded SPs.

    I've no experience with their dynamos but I have a Supernova E3 light and the quality and customer service are both top notch.

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?

    Its supposed to feel notchy - leave it alone ffs. It'll feel less notchy over time but never the same as a standard hub.

    a new Shimano hub is not going to feel notchy from bearings, it's the magnets. I have thought about repacking my older Shimano dynohub, but adjusting it seems like it wouldn't be easy.
