OK, some months ago got a dynohub at a good price, and it built into (thx certain currently-absent forumer) a brand new (factory second) Velocity A23 rim. Finally got a Busch + Muller IQ-Fly (front) and Securelite plus (rear). Both with standlight. (About as far as the budget would stretch). I'm just waiting for the cordless drill to recharge
so I can finish bumping the presta hole up to schrader duty and thought I'd post to ask about routing the wiring.
I've tried it all just with the wires - works a treat. Just flinging the rim around with my hand is bringing a glorious white beam out of the front, and an obnoxious read from the rear.
But... suggestions for how to route the wires. The IQ is mounted up the front on the brake caliper mount thingo. The rear is on the mount on the rack that used to house the reflector.
So, the wire from the dynohub has to come up one fork to the IQ. Cable ties? Spiral around the fork, or straight? How much play do I leave at the end to allow easy removal for when removing the front wheel.
Rear... along the existing cable routes, I'm guessing? Spiral around the cables? Or just alongside? Cableties? That spiraling wire wrap
that I'm assuming (hoping) JayCar would stock? It's all pretty close around the BB and where the cable runs toward the rear - wouldn't want it catching on the chainring. Then, from the rear hub up the rack? (That's where that spiral stuff makes the most sense to me.
Err... yeah. Tips? SMWBO's gonna love it - and I wonder how long before my commuter follows suit.
