Dahon joule II dynamo hub
Bought this, my first dynamo hub. Feels like having a lot of resistance, as if breaks sitting on rims. Is that normal?

It is just the magnets in the dyno hub stopping the wheel because of their magnet attraction. At riding speed you will never feel or notice it. Almost all if not all dyno hubs do the. Roger

You should feel a notchiness when you spin the wheel by hand. There is some drag on the wheel from the dyno hub, but it is typically not noticeable when riding.
