    You don't need to wait for a new bike, all you need is a new front wheel. If you go dynamo, I recommend the Busch and Muller Luxos U headlight. It has the brightest standlight because it has an internal battery for that purpose, for a high-beam function, and for delivering more even power to a USB device (such as a GPS) charging on the USB output.

    Agreed - that light as an excellent one. You can pair it with a companion Toplight Line Brake Plus rear light (also wired to the dynamo) that also functions as a brake light (senses the dropping current from the front wheel slowing down to make the rear light brighter). Paired with a Son 28 front hub...pretty darn worry free. Just...a tad more expensive than buying a new USB rechargable light...

    Thanks for pointing this out. You're giving me ideas.

    bikedavid fed me too much beer and convinced me to sign up for the tri club. So, it seems my Space Horse -- currently in super commuter mode -- is going to have to convert to a sleek steel racer for a brief period this summer. But, after that, it might be dynamo time.
