fibre optics

Fiber optic functions on bicycle
  [vote for,

How do you check your rear lamp on your bicycle is bright while riding your bicycle at night?. Get a fiber optic cable to run from yor rear lamp to the handle bar to indicate the brightness.

You can also use a fiberoptic cable and lamp to indicate which gear you are in. When a small mirror attached to the gears moves it will illuminate a different fiber for each gear.

A fiber optic cable wrapped around the frame with a cracked outer cover will light up your bicycle.

       Welcome to the Halfbakery! Good idea - there should be more fibre-optics on bicycles
