Thank you all very much for advice! I've been agonizing for a while but I finally made up my mind. I'll be getting the non-R (Sport) version. The last time I had such a hard time deciding was......

Thanks for the advice, guys!

2_i, I was fully bought into your logic (and the preference for Cyo R) but my wife is derailing my decision-making. :-) Looking at the photos on the AR test...

B&M Lumotec IQ Cyo vs Cyo R (Sport vs Near field)

I've seen a lot of tests and praise for the Cyo, and I'm sold on it or its near-field version. However, I'm really torn about the Cyo vs Cyo R. The Cyo is brighter (60-70 lux @ 10m at my speeds)...

Yes, I was starting to come to the same conclusion, except that I'm leaning towards B&M IQ Cyo R (the slightly dimmer one but with good lighting close to the bike). Any thoughts?

Thanks a lot for the input. Yes, I probably should have held out for non-disc but I'm happy enough with my choice. Actually, Harris was out of stock for 36h 3N72s but wiggle.co.uk had them for a...

Thanks for the input, matchy99 and Vik! I see the point about trying to avoid dishing. I had a little mis-communication with my LBS (regarding whether or not my email to them made it before their...

Dynohubs: Shimano DH-3D72, DH-371, SRAM i-Light 730

I'm looking to get a dynohub wheel for my Surly LHT (26" wheels, rim brakes). I realize that much has been discussed about dynamos but I find some contradictory and some stale information, so I'd...

Thanks for the input! I started looking at Brooks Saddles and got distracted by tires. :-)

Strangely, the shipping cost increases with every tire added, so despite great prices on Marathon...

Great, thanks a lot for the info! It was, in fact, the Marathon Supremes that got me drooling. :-) Having looked through the Marathon specs at Schwalbe, the Supremes appear to be a great touring...

Hi all,
