Solvinden Light-chain into ambient bicycle frame lighting

Materials: Solvinden solar-powered light chain

I wanted to give my bike something fresh and new for the upcoming springtime.

I spotted the solar powered light chain and thought that it could bring some ambient light to my bike.

After removing the plastic balls and cracking the plastic enclosure of the LED part I wrapped the white shrink tube with black duke-tape to make the LEDs more invisible. I mounted the solar panel at the back of the frame and mounted the rest of the cables with the LEDs with binders.

It took me about 30 minutes to do all the work.
