Giving your Dynamo hub the new color. Shutter Precision SV – 9
You have probably noticed that in regards to bike component color choice 8 time out of 10 this will be Black or Silver.
Here is my little example how it is relatively easy to give almost any color to your favorite bicycle component.
I mind you – this is possible only to the components that are not exposed to the direct physical wear and tear. Like hubs. Or.. Dynamo Hubs in this particular case.
I was looking for a WHITE Dynamo hub.
Certain models have limited variety of color choices. Non of them comes in white though.
Here is how I have turned silver Shutter Precision SV-9 silver dynamo into a white one!
After few months of riding it, hub developed a slight “bearing” play. Most of dynamo hubs are not self serviceable (as SV-9) so it is hard to tell what went wrong. No cones to adjust! I have reached out to Shutter Precision for a help. Must say these guys are very on top and very helpful! I just had to ship broken hub to them (inconvenience!) and they shipped the new hub back to me. Everything took probably 4 days (!!) after they received the hub and I had it back in my hands! Wow. Probably the fastest turn around ever and the company is based in Taiwan.
Hub is serving well and no play or any other issue so far. It is being ridden at least 60 miles/week and quite often more.
