Blinding!

When Mood Music
2013-01-16 00:29:00 illuminated my bath filling

I’ve just ensured Lev’s full complement of lights is working:

  • front: 2 scullies* on each handle-bar drop, a knog** on the front of the pannier rack, a skully and a blinder*** on the head-tube
  • back: a blinder on the seat-post, 2 skullies and 2 knogs on the rear of the pannier rack
  • helmet: 1 white no-brand flashing LED light dangling from the chin-strap and two red ‘no-brands’ on the rear chines.

So that’s 8 front lights and 7 rear lights. I’m pretty sure that they won’t all stop working at once and I’m damn sure no driver will have any excuse not to see me!

*skull-shaped LED lights powered by 2 CR2302 coin-batteries each. The LEDs are where the eyes would be. Skullies are either off, flashing or continually on.

*LED lights powered by 2 CR2302 coin-batteries each. Knogs are either off, slowly flashing, flash-flash-pause-(repeat), rapidly flashing or continually on.

***very bright LED lights, powered by USB-rechargable built-in batteries. Blinders are either off, slowly flashing, pattern-flashing, rapidly flashing or continually on. I plan to get a hub-dynamo and rectifier/accumulator to keep these lights and jPhone charged en-route.
