    My first light - dynamo powered

    Two XPGs and Reginas, a switch, rectifier and smoothing capacitor stuffed into a tiny 1oz flask. Deatils of the build can be found here

    Beautiful! (I can't help but think that you're missing out on some booze carrying potential, though.)
    The study du jour: can one's reputation be artificially inflated by simply putting a request for rep in one's sig?

    I like the upside down star nut mount, but what happens should you ever need to remove it, or the one at the other end?

    Nice idea with the mini hipflask. The one in the pic on cpf, do you have a link for it?

    I use a Hope Head Doctor at the top end so could knock the SFN through if necessary. Flask pic is from Amazon:

    but they're cheaper on ebay, 1oz flask should find loads. The bracket looks big and heavy in the pics but is actually very light. The only place I could find one was SJS cycles

    Very pretty, good work!

    I made a dynamo too, and haven't looked back, it's the future I tell you. I developed mine for off road capability and am saying goodbye to batteries for all forms of riding :-)

    When you think that life is though, keep a positive attitude : remember that it is short ;-)
