How-To: LED Bike Handlebars

As soon as Ladyada and I saw Mitchell Silva’s GLOBARS (adablog post), we knew we had to make some glowing LED handlebars. Instead of cutting into the metal of your handlebars, follow our LED bike handlebar tutorial to affix a strip of LEDs to your bike underneath clear handlebar tape. Video on YouTube (please subscribe to our channel!) and Vimeo.

We also grouped the components into a special LED handlebar project pack – pick yours up in 1m or 2m length! Above is 1m along drop bars, below is 2m spiraled around bullhorns.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Look at 0:50 to 1:00 you will see a full bike+rider amongst other sports player 😉 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7iGriJ0Ogg&feature=g-user-u

  2. I was thinking that an RGB strip (or even just red) attached to the rear wheel frame sides, and hooked to a controller for various blinks/colors would be good for day time rides. Anything to be seen better…
