Dynamo hubs
#1
I'm looking to replace my hope vision 1 with a dynamo hub.

Any body have any experiences of dynamo hubs, particularly
Shimano DH-3N80 for running a front and rear setup.

Thanks.

I built a front wheel on a shimano dynamo hub for a tourer project a mate was building up, I'll ask him if he's ever used it. All I can remember is that out of the box the hub felt 'notchy' but once built up it spun quite freely. He was looking at running a phone charger from it for extended tours, I'm certain he hasn't done any of those since as he moved away for work but he might have tinkered with setting it up... I'll ask..

Thanks,

I guess you won't be able to match this:

I couldn't even get the bits for that money! Amazing value right there... my buddy hasn't used his one as expected, let us know how you get on, I'm thinking of getting one myself!

Thanks for the offer, not sure if I'll get to 100 euro though. Just looking to get the wheel at the moment.

Can someone kindly reassure me that the mavic a319 is 700c!
