    Budget Bottle Dynamo Setup

    OK - I am sorting out a dynamo setup for my wife. She will not be doing much in the way of bad weather/night time/long bike rides so going down the hub dynamo route is a non-starter.

    I am planning to avoid the non-branded bottles, and so far have narrowed my choices down to

    • AXA HR Traction - This is my preferred option at the moment.
    • AXA Quattro - Apart from the roller, I am trying to work out the difference between this and the HR, and which is better (the anthracite colour of the Quattro will look nicer on her bike though).
    • Busch & Muller Dymotec 6 - Is the extra cost worth it over the AXA's?


    I avoided the Nordlicht as I have read too many posts complaining of slippage.

    On to the lights. I want a reasonable output from the, but nothing that will break the bank. Ideally they will be front fork crown and rear rack mounted.

    Here are some that I am considering - obviously the higher the lux the better provided that the lux figure has not been calculated included "wasted" light. - I do prefer beams with a defined, square cut-off, but will consider standard "torch" beams.



    For the rear light I am considering

    Ran out of options, and forgot to include Trelock in the polls.

    Please indicate support of Trelock in your replies. Many thanks

    For a cheap set I used Trelock 695, requiring standlight within a reasonable quality lamp. It works nicely.
