Now all you have to do is put this all together into a kick ass bike project. I know I've left a lot to figure out yourself. But that's the point isn't it? It was really a blast realizing that this should work, then getting the all parts and doing all the experiments, and finding out it does! I just wanted to make this instructable because when I was researching this project I couldn't find any information about using steppers as EL wire drivers. I hope I've given you some food for thought for your next crazy project.
P.S. I also want to win that laser cutter... so if you dug this instructable, vote for me, or something.
