comment Can I replace my bicycle's dynamo with batteries?
Hmm ... well why are penlight batteries a PITA? Already made some coin cell to AA conversions for some of my other battery lights, always had good experiences. It is my first dynamo to battery conversion though ... Setting my bike on fire sounds unreasonable, except if there is a shortage somewhere, but there is not and I got separate plus and minus cables everywhere, no power goes over the frame. @Mσᶎ i will try a slightly larger voltage, I have a variable voltage AC DC converter and a multimeter at home. Thanks for the input!

comment Can I replace my bicycle's dynamo with batteries?
I just want to do this because I have had issues with rim dynamos in the past and want a reliable power source, and I am to lazy to install a hub dynamo. It is also a cost issue, I already have the rechargeable batteries, but would have to buy a new dynamo. This is my city bike, that could get stolen at any time, so I do not want to invest a lot of money in componets.

comment Best type of headphones while riding
Wondering why they still have wind noise. Because i am using the Phillips type you see in my answer, and they even reduce wind noise compared to no headphones.

I guess the Polk audio ones would be great, if they had some foam over them to reduce wind noise.

comment Rattling of a Shimano Nexave roller brake
Here is the official Manual of your brake. Does not tell anything about looseness of the coooling disc though, only some amount of play when braking is mentioned. HTH shimano.com/media/techdocs/content/cycle/SI/RollerBrake/BRIM75F/…

comment Rattling of a Shimano Nexave roller brake
This also fits my experience. Have Shimano BR-IM 80 Roller brakes, and the cooling discs are loose when the brake is not applied. Got used to the noise they make (or maybe it is not so much with my system). I cannot back this up, but I think that this is by design. If it helps, here is the manual for my brake: techdocs.shimano.com/media/techdocs/content/cycle/SI/SI_8G80B/…
