  2. IDC Classy

    IDC Classy

    The IDC Classy Dynamo Wheelset is the affable younger cousin of the pioneering rough-hewn Stout. The Classy is known for its remarkable temperament matching style with resilience and approachability with steadfastness. His countenance is defined by his comely mirror polished H Plus Son TB14 rims and Shutter Precision PV-8 dynohub. This classic box style rim provides the vertical compliance underlying his easygoing attitude at work and forgiving nature at play. It is however his performance under pressure, most notably during speedy descents over rude (in the French sense) surfaces, when his character truly shines.

  3. IDC Stout

    IDC Stout

    When I decided to begin commuting to work by bicycle some years ago, I did what every grown man would do to psyche himself up. I went shopping for bling new kit to bolt on an old racing frame from my halcyon college bike team days. At the time, the most attractive upgrade for my re-purposed race bike was a hub dynamo lighting system. This I expected would free me from the mindless drudgery (both physical and mental) of installing, removing, recharging, losing and replacing battery lights on a regular basis ... and that is exactly what it did.


    To install the dynamo light, however, I needed a front wheel fitted with a hub dynamo. Since I had grown quite a bit heavier since my college days and would be riding on city streets with a fair share of rim crunching hazards, I wanted a sturdily built front wheel and an equally stout rear. That is when I found that the cost of entry for hub dynamo convenience could be pretty hefty and, moreover, technically challenging. Getting a hub dynamo, selecting appropriate spokes, nipples and rims as well as locating a proficient wheel builder … and paying nearly as much again to have them delivered from the UK to France (where I was living at the time), was quite a bit of work. As an enthusiast with a descent income, I enjoyed the challenge (it took my mind off work), but I imagined that such an effort was probably beyond the “comfort zone” of many individuals that could most benefit from this useful technology, i.e. harried sedentary office workers relatively new to cycling seeking to shed a few lbs. and improve their health.



    And that is how the IDC "Stout" hub dynamo wheelset was born. The idea was to produce an affordable high-quality replica of the French rim, Swiss spoke and German hub specification “dream” wheelset I arrived at when creating my first hub dynamo commuter wheelset. After three years of personal and two years of use by our testers and customers around the world, the Stout dynamo wheelset (once ingloriously named “Sanyo dynohub (hub dynamo)/Vuelta rim 700c front bicycle wheel”) has to date proven no less reliable and elicited considerable positive customer feedback. In essence, the Stout wheelset is what I would have liked to have had the first time around − a high quality field-tested battle ready dynamo commuter wheelset built with care and eager to take on the rigours of commuting and even loaded touring applications … at a reasonable price.
