The Best: Schmidt’s Original Nabedynamo. Get a hub, get a headlamp, get a second job.
Ultra Mini: Planet Bike Micromite. Super packable, even if you wear superhero clothes.
Frame Pump: Zefal HPX Classic. From the famous 130 year old French company.
Floor Pump: Lezyne CNC Floor Drive. So much better than anything else, feel extra smug.
