I would like to learn some stuff about building generators.

I'm looking to make a few generators Ideally I want to make a contactless generator for a bicycle to be able to add a usb charger port to the bike.
Can anyone provide any information on winding the coils and magnet configurations for a generator.

Seems easy enough to setup but there seems to be sparse documentation on it either that or I'm just looking in the wrong places. I guess that this is becoming a usual for me I dont ask here unless I've been beating my head off the wall for a while on a subject.
Anyways The idea is to have a generator that will generally charge usb and add little to no mechanical drag.
