Hi all,

I'm sick of the drag on the front wheel.  ( DH-F703 6v 3.0w ) 

Examples of the drag


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5hnKdiQOG2A (between 3:10 he spins and the wheel stops at 3:14 - that's for the Shimano DH-F703 , and it didn't look any longer with the Son dynamo hub later in the video (which is a $400 before being laced to a wheel) ) 

The halogne light and rear is decent, and the connection looks straight forward with just 2 wires, is there a way to splice in a battery pack instead?

I rather carry a static battery weight then to deal with the drag. 

(It also opens up the option to change the front wheel to non dynamo option)

Let us know how you go!

As an aside, my Dutch bike has a generator and LEDs which I love. I just leave them on and forget about them.

My German MTB has USB rechargeable LEDs and they are great but I do prefer the generator especially as the German LEDs do not recharge from the bike. Putting them on and turning them on is a chore, especially with several trips per day.
