Chicago streets are very well lite, but head and tail lights make you NOTICABLE, there is a difference between being seen and noticed.
I'm a big fan of lights and before cars came with it I was one of those goofy drivers that had his headligghts on all the time, I always liked getting flashed with brights and people stoping to tell me my lights were on in the daytime.
ANYWAY is anyone here using or used a bottom braket mounted dyno, these are different than the bottle types
You can see one here: http://www.peterwhitecycles.com/sanyo.asp
Do the headlights unplug easy enough to be removed when my bike is parked?
I currently run the Shimano Alfine DynoHub with the Supernovar E3 Triple Front light
I have a little over 2000 miles on the system and it is working marvelously. Supernova recently upgraded my LEDs so I now have about 800 lumens out the front!
