Just get out there and ride! Don't need lycra or special shoes. A helmet is optional...your choice.

I am just a guy with a love of the bicycle and a firm believer it is a viable form of transportation. The bicycle is an amazing invention. It allows a small human to transport a large load over long distances easily. It is THE MOST ENERGY EFFICIENT FORM OF TRANSPORTATION...PERIOD!!!

Let there be LIGHT!

And after installing a B&M Lumotec IQ Fly all I can say is WOW! I can see riding down the paved road, I can see riding down our gravel road, I can see riding down the grass lane to the barn! The beam pattern is fairly narrow but very bright and reaches out well. The other great thing is the LED powers up very quickly and reaches near full brightness even at a walking pace...great thing if you have to wheel a broken bike home (not that it would happen mind you)

1) Where did you buy it?
Did you actually order this form Germany?
2) Did you buy the dynamo charger with it?
3) How much did you pay?

Hi man,
Thanks for stopping buy. The headlight came from Clever Cycles in Portland, OR. The dynamo was a special order from Work Bikes in Amsterdam. However it will work with any type of 6 volt generator. Generators vary quite a bit in price from a few dollars to over $400 for a top of the line Schmidt hub built into a top of the line wheel.
