I picked up a Brompton SON Dynamo (QVHDYNSET-SON) from Clever Cycles a little while ago and ran into a few snags before I actually will get to mount it on my bike. If you’re planning on doing this, please note the following.
The $550 USD price tag only gets you:
- SON XS Dynamo
- Built wheel with the Dynamo
- Front halogen light
- Rear LED light
- Zap straps
It will not include the following
- Inner Tube
More on this project from me later once I get the rim tape and let you know how the installation goes. I thought it’d be easier to get this in an all-in-one kit despite the overall increase in parts cost, but I think I might be wrong about that now.
Update: the kit does come with blue rim tape for the wheel. I just somehow missed it the first time I looked.
