The critics mean, if everyone drives with light during the day, we survey the cyclists, because they only turn on their light, if it gets dark!
Ok, nice point. We bikers need bright enviroment-friendly light, too Hm, we all like LEDs! (You do, i´m sure ^^ ) LEDs on our bikes! Great idea!
So, I thought "Why, don´t build a LED-Bike-Day-Drive-Light?".
I started "developing" 6 months ago and realized that it is relative easy to do!
I wanted a light, that is bright enough to be seen on daylight.
In addition it should be possible to turn on both "light-systems" (the main-system: front-light, and rear-light, I hope you got them, but it is not necessary for this Instructable; and the new day-light-system)
And the most important point: it have to use the dynamo and NO BATTERIES.
Here on instructables.com are a lot of these battery lights, but if you ask me we all should never use batteries for a bike light! We have only the one planet... And we all should realize that good (longlasting) batteries aren´t cheap on long time. So, hey! A (Hub-) Dynamo is the best way if you ride your bike often. In my opinion good Bikers make their light in an environmentally friendly manner!
So, here are the advantages of the
... makes biking safer
... looks great, everyone is looking at you!
... you can turn on your ordinary light and the Day-Drive-Light
... LED-light makes fun!
Ok i wrote to much. LED´s start!
PS: please read the complete Instructable before you start. Some informations are necessary for the complete LED-Light :D
