Dynamo hub upgrades for your Conway


Your Stanforth Conway will be fitted with a Shimano RS505 front disc hub, but if you'd like to upgrade it to a dynamo hub, please choose between the two we have an offer. We have a choice of the the Schmidt Son 28 dynamo disc hub or the Shutter Precision PL8 dynamo hub as upgrades on your Conway. N.B. These can only be purchased when buying a Stanforth Conway

Dynamo hub
  • The Schmidt SON 28 dynamo disc hub (32h)


    The SON 28 is bike tourers' most highly regarded dynamo hub. We recommend the SON 28 when more light is required at low speed or when other devices are to be operated or their batteries recharged. 


    The bigger the wheel size the faster you'll need to be going to get your dynamo hub to produce power. As the Conway has a 700c wheel size this is where the Schmidt SON 28 hub has the edge over the Shutter Precision.


    Weight - 460g

    Shutter Precision PL8


    As we've said our recommended dyno hub for the Stanforth Conway is the SON 28 due to the 700c wheel size. However if you plan to use your Conway for faster touring then the PL8 will be a good value option. These 3w dynamo hubs are very well designed and engineered for touring. A very good small, light and efficient dynamo hub. The PL8 is disc specific with a centre-lock disc mount


    Holes - 32 or 36

    A skewer for the hub is included in the price
