The products are:

SON Hub Dynamos: "The best dynamos in the world - period! Made by a small and very fanatical German manufacturer, they have very low drag and are extremely reliable."

Heinzmann Motors (and bikes): "Electric motors for bikes - probably the best available and easy to fit. Complete bikes are also available. Dealer restrictions apply..."

Pantour Hubs: "Suspension hubs for any bike. Just spoke this hub into the wheel for a very plush ride. They soak up road vibration very well, and are much lighter than suspension forks."

Torque Couplings: "For expert framebuilders only! Fit to any steel frame to allow it to split in the middle - also works on tandems."


The latest version of Cooper's gear calculation program is free, and Windows-based. It calculates gear ratios for all systems in production, claims Cooper. It has a graphical output so you can see how the gears lay out and overlap.
