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.
I nabbed this link from Jutta's 'Broomcycle' idea. [StarChaser, Mar 25 2001]
||Welcome to the Halfbakery! Good idea - there should be
more fibre-optics on bicycles

your to-do list these last 20 years, you'll be running out of
things to do at this rate.
