Say hello to my little friends
« on: February 08, 2013, 08:44:00 PM »
See and be seen. A man down the street from me died in a hit and run during the Super Bowl. I added red leds to the back of my ebike to make it more obvious at night. The ebike has two 35ah 12v sla's, so the front lights are hooked to one battery and the back lights to the other. I used RCA audio male and female connectors. They are cheap and easy to hook/unhook by hand.

The article about the dead man, John Deryck Quintal is here:

He must have been riding on the wrong side of the road without lights. There is barely enough room for cars in one lane on this road.

Those LED's should add a lot more visibility in low light situations and should hopefully make your bike more visible to other traffic.  Rich
