    Tikit with dyno wheel and lights

    I have had my Tikit for about 6 mouths now and love it!. One thing that has come up is the I end up riding it after dark with out planing ahead. it is by go to the store bike, and trips to pick up stuff happen if the sun is up or not. so I did not want to get a battery light set (a real set not just a "be seen" front light). so I order a dyno wheel and light set and installed it about a week ago. I got a SON SX wheel. the beam is a bit on the narrow side because it is mounted to low but it works. I am really liking the lights and the ability to just jump on and go anytime day or night with out having to plan ahead.

    SWEET! I use that same light on my "tour" bike. If you need a bit better pattern I believe the IQ Luxos uses the same optics as the Edelux which is supposed to be top shelf. I have about 4 different B&M lights on my various bikes and have been pleased with all of them. Also that hub can support a couple of LED head lights.

    FWIW I treat most of my bikes as a second car, they have to be equipped to ride at any time of day or night in any weather. That means dyno hubs, good lights, fenders and racks. I have a couple of bikes that are only used for daytime only. But those are the exception.

    This post made my day. I was thinking it'd be pretty hard to miss a bike with that color scheme!

    I'm jealous of that paint job! I wonder if my orange Cricket would look as good with the tiger stripes....
