Introduction: Lightrider DIY Bike Light
Made a DIY version of the revolights http://www.revolights.com
total cost for one wheel is about 35 dollar
instead of a microcontroller i use simple reed magnet switches
the two outer rings consist of 18 Led's in 6 groups each all is powered by two AA batteries they are located on the hub
the only thing i don't have because i use the reed switches is the cool animation like revolights when the wheel stands still
36x High Power 8mm Led's (18 on each side)
2x two meter long Aluminum stripes 15mm wide (in my case shortened to 1,75 meter)
6x Reed magnet Switch
2x 2meter 7 pin flat ribbon cable (one for each side)
2x 7 pin mini plugs (for easy installation)
Zip ties to mount the whole thing on the wheel
Hot glue gun
