Any experience or opinions on this?
The cheap price caught my eye. I'm liking the idea of a dynamo front wheel for my LeMond. My Kona Dew has a Shimano (3N71?) wheel I built, but it's on a disc specific rim, so I can't use it on a conventional road bike with rim brakes. Aside from the Novatron's resistence, it might be kind of goofy to have a 36 spoke front wheel and 32h rear
I can get another Shimano hub for $77 from JensonUSA.
I've read all about SON hubs from Peter White - and honestly, if I ever get into serious Brevets I'll consider throwing down hundreds of dollars. For now I just like the idea of uninterrupted light on my "go fast" bike and I hate recharging batteries.
What's really attractive is that for ~$100 + spokes, I can build a reliable dynamo wheel.
