As for the cost of setting up a dynamo light set, my bike is my transport. I considered what sort of money I'd be prepared to pay for the lighting system on my car. Then considered these lights are protecting my life. The costs reduced in significance quite a bit to me after this.

It's not that expensive either. I landed a Shimano hub (not as nice as a Schmidt, but I've used one for years, no complaints) plus front and rear B&M lights for about $200 last year. Both lights and hub have been excellent.
