I`m not quite sure whether you`re joking or serious, PDR. In case it was a serious question, dynamos have advantages just like batteries do... never need changing charging or checking, you can run them as "daytime running lights" for no extra cost, and some people now use the hubs to charge misc electical toys when they aren`t using the light. As far as weight is concerned, I guess which method is heavier depends on exactly what models you`re talking about- more or less the same. And if you don`t use the dyno for a tail light, it only requires clipping (actually, I use electrical tape) at one point on the fork- the rest of the run can just follow the brake cable that`s already right there. If you already knew that and were just joking, sorry for misreading your tone.
Is a weight given anywhere for that hub?
