[Listening to: Bright Lights - Richard Ashcroft - Human Conditions]
Back in February 2012, I backed my first (and so far, only) Kickstarter project, and pledged $199 to the Magnic Light idea. As is says on the site, the first compact contactless bicycle dynamo. Maximal light with minimal effort. No friction, no batteries, no cables. Light & Cool! What's not to like about that I thought? I'd be able to commute without ever having to worry if my batteries for my lights were charged.
Of course, within a month I'd crashed and broken my femur, and then my contract wasn't renewed. So no cycling for 6-months whilst I ewas on crutches, and then, no work, so no commuting...
However, last month a small package arrived with my complete Magnic Light system consisting of two front light and a back light, with the adapters requested for Cantilever brakes so I can fit them to my Cross bike.
So, commuting or not, I had to fit them to see whether they worked.
