It's summer, the weather is nice and it's a great time great time of year to go for a bike ride! Don't you think you should be hitting the streets in style? Have no fear, MonkeyLectric is here for you! Their products fill your wheels with digital light art that is sure to get you noticed at night. We've partnered up with MonkeyLectric to celebrate their newest project, The Monkey Light Pro, being launched on Kickstarter! We want to see what kind of awesome bike and wheel creations the Instructables community is capable of.

The Monkey Light Pro creates images and animations within the spokes of bicycle wheel. Once rolling, the display fills the bike wheel, and your images are visible from both sides. How cool is that?!

Just to be clear, we are looking for an original photo, video, or step-by-step Instructable that include bicycles and/or wheels in the published project. In the case of MonkeyLectric's Monkey Light Pro Kickstarter not fully funded, they will give the grand prize winner an equivalent value in other Monkey Light products.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entries from US, Canada [excluding Quebec], UK, China, Belgium, the Netherlands, Australia, Colombia, Germany, Switzerland, Norway, India, New Zealand, and Denmark. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), June 10, 2013. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, July 22, 2013.
