on my touring bike (francis) i'm using 4 cateye 4 LED systems. they use 4 or 5 AA's and get 200+ hours per batterie change. when i get my trike in (2 weeks and counting, and her name is sheila cause she's coming from australia) i'm planning on just switching out the cateyes as needed.Originally Posted by RainmanP
on the sides of both bikes i've picked up some valve covers (tyreflies or tireflies not sure which spelling) they get 100 hours run time per change and run off watch batteries. tyreflies also makes a lighted wheel reflector which i'm not sure about but i have.
on francis i use 3, 7 LED's on her rear end. one attached to the rack and one on each pannier.
as sheila hasn't arrived yet i've only got things planned for her. going to use the 4 cateyes on her front, tyreflies on the valves and i picked up a 18 LED's system that's built for recumbents. i've also found a neat little set up thats for use w/ those little scooters they have running around. planning on picking up some ground effects for sheila. they run off 2 AA's per side and your supposed to get 50 hours of run time per change out.
and this doesn't even include my sterio system. picked up some creative speakers that run off 2 AAA's and get 35 hours of run time out of them. picked them up at best buy (worst buy) for 60 USD. (they are for laptops.) seeing as they are by far the most expencive thing i've paid for i'm not planning on attaching them w/ velcro like my last set. they are too cool to have go bouncing off the pavement. and seeing as sheila hasn't gotten here yet i'll have to wait and see how i do set them up.
and if that don't confuse ya, i don't know what will. yes i'm eccentric to the max, but if your going to call me a nut.... lets be specific, i'm a cashew!
