Adding a power producing generator to your bike always seems like a good idea until you really start looking into the products available. There are great solutions, but it means you need a new hub, front wheel, and some even require DIY skills to install. Siva Cycles is out to change all of that with their new Atom mobile bicycle generator.
They have developed a simple, elegant, nearly universal solution to add USB power to your bike. The device consists of three moving parts, a set of capacitors to regulate electricity output, and it mounts quickly and easy to the rear axle. The best part, not only will it charge while you ride, it also includes a removable battery you can take with you and use to top off your phone, lights, or any other USB device.
