you know... I just reviewed the video from the kick-starter site again...
I reallllllly hope there is some outstanding innovation here...
yet, at the very beginning of the video - right after the shot of Mr. Strothmann at his desk introducing there is a second shot.
In this shot, he is standing next to the fork and mounting the unit on the right brake arm. (watch mounting 0:19-0:22 onto the brake arm)
-the unit quickly snaps from his hand to the rim. Suggesting a strong magnetic attraction.
...maybe the inner-tube valve?
...maybe he has a steel front rim?
what do you cats see?
Im quite excited about this once the patent goes through and these are availbe at a slightly lower price (hopefully).
I wonder if you could retrofit a bracket with a shallow arch matching the wheel.
Thus allowing maybe a daisy chain of 2 or more units for stacking the watts or raising the voltage?
