DIY Glow Bike Kits Now Available


Want a bike that glows so that you can fight for the user? Or better yet, for safety and visibility? A few members at the Vancouver Hack Space have recently put together an EL wire Glow Bike kit. What’s a kit you ask? Basically, VHS’ers purchased supplies in bulk needed to create this contraption – and are also interested in teaching people how to put the kit together – with some basic soldering knowledge. If you’re interested in the kit, and also learning how to make it, please send an email to and read this post for more details on ordering information, and how to get yours today.


If you don’t want to purchase a kit but want to learn how it’s done, we’ve made an instruction manual free of charge.
