At first the amount of effort to manually spin the hub was concerning, but once the wheel was built up it's far less noticeable.
While riding in general the drag from the hub is hardly apparent. The only time that I really notice any impact is when coasting as it appears to have a slight amount of vibration and I do notice a minor slow down. However compared to a typical friction dynamo this is still superior.
The benefits of the hub greatly offset the minimal drag. This is definitely aimed at commuters and touring. I would not recommend this for anything where you're being timed.
I paired this with a Busch & Müller Luxos U and Toplight Brake Plus. I'm extremely satisfied so far with all 3 components. They work together excellent.
PROS: Great Value, Low Drag, Easy To Install
CONS: Slightly heavy
BEST USES: Touring, commuting
