DIY LED Brevet Lighting on the Cheap

If you want a high power LED light you can power with a dynohub and don't want to break the bank Paul L has some instructions for a DIY LED light he has successfully used for brevets.

Note that you can get a Shimano dynohub for $95 instead of $310 for a SON. It will output the same power as the SON, but have higher drag, a shorter life expectancy and cannot be rebuilt like the SON. I have a Shimano dynohub waiting for me to build it up into a 700c wheel for my Surly LHT so I can use my 1203D on that bike as well.
