The bottle dynamo rides against the tire turning it . The wires from it go to the front liht. The same two wires  may also be hoked to a back light. The  direction of flow is not that important but most put the same (one of the two ) wire on the center connection. If you generator has only one wire, then the light(s) will have to be grounded through the frame.

How do I install bicycle light?

Dynamo Lighting can be a devil to install.

With a standard dynamo there it only a positive cable the idea being that the current flows back through th eframe to the negative / earth on the dynamo clamp.

In practice this is fine, but if you have a headsey with a plastcu bearing cup this won't work.

To make sure just run a negative wire from the dynamo "foot" (bit you put the fixing bolt through" to the negative terminals on the lights.

If you are enjoying your dynamo lights then after a a while you may consider an upgrade to a hub dynamo, which is silent, efficnet and has possitive and negative terminals.

I just bought an led light set for my new diamondback bike. Which is fine except I don't know how to attach it to the bike the pieces that came with it only attach together. Am I missing something?

If you feel pieces are missing, return the unit and get a new one. Aside from that, you would have to improvise a fastener to attach to the frame or handlebars. 7_16_2013_10_17_55_pm.jpg

I am trying to find a dynamo that gives 110v with low rpm, can you please advice me how?

Ceiling fans, stair landings, over the front door bulbs can all be changed infrequently with these bulbs. Make sure you never install a 12 Volt led bulb in a 120 Volt socket as it will damage the bulb. Choose correctly, enjoy the lighting and save time and money.Maybe you like it.

Along with basic bike repair tools, you may want to bring Car Light Bulbs for when you bike along those deserted lightless roads at night. If you want to track your distance, cycling computers are a good idea and if you're going to leave your bike tied up outside while staying in cities, you may do well to invest in an Onguard bicycle lock.

I would like to know how to connect the dynamo lights on my bike

You want to attach this item to the rear of the bike. Mount it so that when you hit the switch the item lean over and hits the rear tire. Hook up the wire to the lights and your all set. Now I can tell you that with this item NOT engaged you will be able to ride with no problems, but with this item engaged it will give you resistance. Meaning that you will know how much harder it is to pedel the bike. I had this item and then went and purchased a battery power item.
