Arduino Bike Speedometer

Monitor your road speed using the Arduino. This project uses a magnetic switch (also called a reed switch) to measure the speed of one of the bike's wheels.  The Arduino calculates the mph, and send this information out to the LCD screen on the handlebars as you ride.  It is compatible with any kind of bike/wheel, simply enter the radius of the wheel in the firmware to calibrate the device for your setup.

Flashing LED Top Tube Pad for your bike using Arduino

Well it's that time of year again. That's right, the sun is going down early, and it's getting hard to avoid logging some miles on your bike after dark.

Bike Dashboard

In this Instructable I'll show you how to make a electronic dashboard for a bicycle. We'll be using an Arduino and a few off-the-shelf parts to create a system with light control and an LED speedometer. Step 1: Materials Arduino Micro (RadioShack #: 276-258) 12V 10W halogen bulb (RadioShack #: 272-011) (2x) 12V lamp (RadioShack #: 272-336) (6x) LED holder (RadioShack #: 276-080) (3x) green LED (RadioShack # ...

Let's face it. Taillights are boring. At best they go 'blink blink - look at me! I'm blinking - woohoo' all the time. And they're always red. Very creative. We can do better than that, maybe not much, but still better than just 'blink blink'. I was riding my bike during new year celebrations and people liked it, and not all of them were drunk ;-) The rest is pretty straight forward: 2x AA cells, boost conve ...
