Rivendell is now stocking a budget dynamo wheel based upon the SunTour dynamo hub. This looks like a great value if you’ve been wanting to get a dyno hub but the price has been an obstacle. From their website:
Everybody in the cosmos has a bike knocking around that’s begging for a generator light, but doesn’t get one because they cost too much for that particular bike.
This SunTour dyno wheel is the solution, and it’s a remarkable value. The hub is a new SunTour dyno hub that seems like the best deal in the dyno-hub world. It’s not Schmidt quality, but it’s not Schmidt price, either. If you want the best and can pay for it, get the Schmidt.
But this hub here, on this wheel here, with DT Swiss spokes and a Velocity “Twin Hollow” rim, makes an incredible wheel value. They’re built in Florida to fairly high standards, and then touched up to even higher standards here by Rich.
It’s a cheap way to get a good dyno wheel.
The wheel is available in both 700c and 650B at $184.
