Does hanging a dreidel from a saddle rail count?

A friend gave me some battery powered LED Chrimstmas lights last year that I hung on my bike. I'll get around to putting them back on.

I love the reindeers!
I will be doing the same quite soon at out LBS

(how did you attach the seat to the bars-zip ties?)

when I was stateside I had blinking x-mas lights in the back windows of my volvo turbo wagon-it was cool!
pretty easy to wire up

Junked pieces of brake and shifter cable, sometimes old pieces of tubes.

Very long extension cord? Or around in a circle, like the old Cox control-line gas planes, with the extension cord coming out from the center of the circle?

You'll need to wear your Santa hat.

The Nishiki is currently attached to the wall socket, but for travel I have battery-powered units that I can wrap on the frame. Need to find a santa hat that will fit over my helmet!

I have a set of multi-color flashing LEDs on my tandem, but like a lazy neighbor's Christmas lights, they stay on all year. They're always a hit.
