Wheel Lights for Paired Spokes

All of these wheel light systems that have been discussed in the forum are pretty cool, but I have paired spokes. All of the wheel lights seem to need wheels with 3 spoke increments. Any ideas?

Also having paired spokes I had been wondering the same thing. I found these Tire Sparx, motion activated, they come 2 to a pack and are pretty inexpensive. They screw onto the valve stem.

I tried these and they will not activate on a smooth road and are inconsistent on chip and seal. Apparently a certain level of vibration is needed to activate these. I don't recommend them. If you do try them be aware there are Schrader and Presta versions and a lot of LBS's stock the Schrader version targeting the children's market as a novelty item.
