Becky Stern is a former contributor over on the Craft: blog. Now she’s dreaming up ideas for Adafruit, an electronics parts and kit supplier. Inspired by Mitchell Silva’s GLO-BARS, she came up with an easy way to replicate it using some led tape, heat shrink tubing (gasp!) and clear handlebar tape (wow, you’ll never complain of “sloppy wrap” again!).
The video is super easy to follow, and the list of ingredients easily attainable. I think the light produced when wrapping the led tape around the handlebars is a bit too bright and might obscure the cyclist’s vision at night. However, this would be a great project for under the handlebars, or along the frame.
