Tell us about yourself!
As anything with refrigeration will produce condensation and mdf/particle board does not tolerate moisture well, anyone duplicating this build would be well served to spend a couple of extra bucks and make that base out of plywood.
Instead of tape how about spray adhesive.
As someone else suggested this is illegal in many or most states. California prohibits any reflective tint.
Right choice of lube but there is a much better way. Leave the bike upright. Shift the derailleurs until both front and rear are on the smallest sprockets. Now use a zip tie to tie off the jockey wheel cage to the frame. This leaves a large part of the chain hanging slack. Now take a ziplock or other heavy plastic bag and squirt the wax directly into the bag and run the chain through it. This fully immerses the chain in lube but with the least waste.
What. Does. It. Mean!??
in most jurisdictions in the US there are no restrictions on the use of such lights on streets and highway, within common sense. (i.e; use spot not flood pattern, aimed below 25", and not above the output of equivilent DOT approved lighting.) I have no problems riding with a lighting system with 5 cree xm-ls, that is probably consistent with the light in this instructible.IIRC Germany however does have strict regulations regarding dispersion patterns and output and other countries probably do as well.All that said there is a limit to how much light to take on the street OR trail before you become offensive to others and they do not want to ask you to go on group rides any more! (Particularly with helmet mount)
You do not need to tin wire you are splicing together in fact it makes the joints as you show much more difficult. Also one can do these with an open flame like a lighter or torch in a pinch. Its not the preferred mervlb
You could save a lot of trouble and just wear a pig snout, available at most good pet stores.
I thought everyone knew this already... it works on most tire/rim combinations, not all. (My shimano XTRs, the ones they made about 10 years ago with the spoke adjusters on the hub, would not mount conti gatorskins without levers.)However you don't focus on the one tip that makes this work: You've got to make sure the bead of the side opposite of the side you are prying off or on, falls into the deepest part of the valley of the rim. (Then of course you work that extra slack around if it doesnt do so by itself)Second that baby powder suggestion. Many tube mfrs put it on already, talc is a protectent of rubber and stops decay from petroleum products. Its a win-win application.
10 Places to Hide a Spare Key
I never had a problem finding someplace close to anywhere I have lived to put spare house keys in a bag and bury them. As for the car I get a spare cut and jb weld a rare earth magnet to it. Slap it virtually anywhere under the car, it won't fall off ever if the magnet is big enough.
Hope that 45w array is not of the harbor freight variety. Amorphous silicone, low output and service life.
Should use an isolator on that second bank. Its like a relay, closes the circuit when the engine is running.
