IS resistors necessary? cos the material list didn't include resistors

I wonder what it would look like with UV LEDs with spokes and inside of rim painted with fluorescent paint.

Nice work. I suggest for the beginner to include a schematic diagram.

yes..!!! it does form a circle..!!!

this is quiet simple and much more less expensive. I'd like to try this out on my motorcycle.

Quick question though, how about using the hamster wheel principle in making the LED lights turn on as the wheels are moving. That would save us from buying batteries too.

you can use google translate, which translates directly to English text with perfect spelling.

sorry for noob question.. how should i wire the LEDs? 4 LED in series = 9V battery? and then another set of these again? should i make it (4 LED in series) parallel with (4LED in series) = 9v battery?

Hi! I'm from Ukraine)))

Why not to drill the holes in the rim and hide all wires inside?
Battery will be hidden near the hub

Wouldn't this weaken the wheel?
