Glow Worm Bicycles | Lights and Hub Dynamos

Good quality bicycle lights increase safety while riding a bicycle. They also make for a more relaxing and pleasant ride at night as you can see bumps coming and don't have to strain your eyes. 

Lights are legally required when riding a bicycle when it's dark. 

We sell many types of bicycle lights. The most popular are USB rechargeable bicycle lights so that you can always keep your lights bright by plugging them into a computer or other USB outlet to keep them charged. This reduces battery waste to landfill as well. 

We stock and sell a range of lights compatible with electric bicycles

For non-electric bicycles the most convenient and effective option by far is a hub dynamo system. The movement of the bicycle (the front hub in particular) generates electricity to run your lights. Your lights are bolted on so you don't have to remove them each ride and of course they don't need charging up. The lights still stay on when you are not moving for several minutes so that you are safe at intersections, through a capacitor. This is referred to as a 'standing light'. You can even buy some lights that allow you to charge other USB devices like your phone or GPS through the hub dynamo. 

Setting yourself up with a hub dynamo lighting system costs approximately $500 for the hub dynamo wheel, front and rear lights and labour. It involves replacing your front hub with a small generator called a 'hub dynamo'. Typically you just replace the whole front wheel with a hub dynamo wheel, meaning it has a hub dynamo already built into it. Then you need to select front and rear lights compatible with the hub dynamo system. We recommend the B&M Toplight as our hub dynamo rear light of choice. It's light and bright and looks great. We have several choices of hub dynamo front lights. We'll wire it up for you and away you go. You'll never look back and your years of losing lights, having them stolen, forgetting to charge them will be over!

 We're so sure you'll love your hub dynamo setup that we'll pre-emptively buy back your battery lights through our 'battery light amnesty' this winter of 2016. We'll offer 100% trade-in value for battery lights you bought from us in the last year towards a hub dynamo setup. Didn't buy your battery lights from us? We'll offer you a minimum of $25 for your working set of battery lights towards a hub dynamo setup.
