I was planning on getting a dynohub for lights on a tourer, but after speaking to my LBS, I don't know anymore. I had thought that when the light was off, a dynohub had no resistance (thought there was some kind of clutch), I was told that there is always resistance (does it increase when the light is on?). The guy at my LBS said he used a bottom bracket (Sanyo) in the past and that he preferred them, because there was no resistance when not needed.
how many of you prefer the hubs over the bb? How much resistance am I looking at with the hub? A hub setup, wheel and all, would be quite a bit more expensive, but I'd be willing to do it if over the long term I'd be happier. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Does the position of the bb ever cause problems?
