Thank you! I agree - a cheerfully lit up bike is a wonderful thing :)
Excellent! Thanks so much for sharing :)
I agree with you it's really important that a rear light is red for safety and legal reasons. I'm sorry I don't have better equipment to represent the light more like it looks in person, because that photo does seem to have mislead a few people. I'm glad you think the idea is sound :)
This definitely works with smaller bottles as well, a friend made his out of a shampoo bottle. I love your idea of using it to make a tent light!
Agreed - where I live the law mandates red rear lights so this is what I've used. It may be that you're perceiving the light as white in my first photo because the brightness of the light has overexposed that part of my photo. You can see by the reflection on the bike rack that the light is red. Certainly when on the road the red colour of the light is clearly visible.
I'm glad you like this build! In this instance I have used a red light, but it looks like the overexposure of the image is making it appear white to readers. I'll adjust the wording of the instructions to make it clearer that a red light ought to be used for rear of vehicle instals.

I've tried to adjust the image to make it clearer, to no avail. The wording of the instructions does list a red light in the materials needed and state that a red light ought to be used for rear of vehicle installs.
