Bike stand and bright rear led lights

video Bike stand and bright rear led lights

An easy-to-make indoor stand (for some applications), and some really bright rear lights for night riding.

What kind of container did you use for your battery pack? I'm doing a project very similar to yours and don't know what kind of container to use.

Thanks!

Adam,
Thanks for asking. It was a Maxwell House "tin" that contained "International Delight" (I think it was called) coffee. The only drawback....the Radio Shack battery pack, when loaded with batteries, is a bit tight in it's fit. Be cautious not to ground out the battery pack against the metal coffee container.

Thank you Matt. You might like another video I have on 'Bicycle Brake Lights', where a small switch works off the caliper to activate the lights.
