Supernova E3 Triple 2 dynamo headlight

I’ve wanted to add a dynamo lighting and charging setup to my bikepacking bike for a while. I love the idea of a light that never needs batteries and a phone that never runs out of charge. For long distance and/or remote touring a dynamo setup really comes into its own, adding extra autonomy to your escape pod.

Wanaka Tweed Ride 2015

Wanaka had its inaugural Tweed Ride last week! We had a rollicking time of it, with a fine showing of ‘old faithfuls’ going as far back as the 1930’s.
