  1. I'm baffled by the number of battery-operated (internal rechargeable via USB or conventionally insertable AA or AAA) lights for bikes that are being sold. There is a thing called dynamo. No hassle recharging, always attached at the bike, reliable. There are hub dynamos that have almost no resistance (only the induced electrical field has some resistance) and are silent. It makes me somewhat annoyed and mad that people buy this crap. Additional lights... fine. But they are mostly advertised as main front and rear lights.
