Safety is a big problem for anyone who wants to ride a bike in the dark.Reflective equipment on bicycles or clothes is a must.Installing the lights will ensure that oncoming traffic will see you better and help you see where you are going.Building your own lights can save money or make money for a great project.Description difficulty: the moderate challenge determines which type of light you will use.You should do a little research to see what works best for you.Some people use LED lights, but they tend to be weak.Halogen lamps are reasonably priced and bright, but are hotter and use more energy.In this example, we will use MR16 halogen lamps.Be sure to buy a suitable socket for the bulb.Choose a body to hold your light.The body can be made of simple items picked up by the hardware store's pipeline department.Pick up the PVC female cap (the cap the lamp will put in) and the trap adapter to create the body.Close the socket and nuts and bolts to you.Hold the bulb and place it next to the body conduit hook.Use a no-Hub coupling for making sleeve for bulb.Remove the rubber from the inside of the coupling.Cut it in half, but not all.You basically want to leave a strap about inches to connect the two halves.You will use it as the shell of the bulb and separating it mostly makes it easier to insert.Drill a small hole on the hanger and attach the hanger to the hub with small nuts and bolts.Drill another small hole in the body.Cut 3 inch RCA male/female wires from the end.Stick the rope to the hole you just drilled and weld it on the socket.Weld the other end of the power cord to the battery pack.A good set of batteries will be 10 AAs in one container.Buy a rechargeable battery because it saves you money on the road.Connect all of this and start riding.The battery pack should last for three hours if you use 10-1watt bulb.Tips and warning articles written by Kelsey Childress Kelsey run a freelance creative business called Awen creative specializing in SEO Web content, social media marketing and blogsShe has been writing online and onlineHe has been published for more than six years and has a bachelor's degree in English literature and creative writing from University of Kansas.
