LEDs in my handlebar grips

Two of the five light bulbs in my handlebar grips were burned out. As part of my quest to replace every light bulb on my bike with an LED, I pulled the grips apart and put blue LEDs in to replace the light bulbs in there. The light bulbs are absolutely tiny:


I'm quite pleased with the result:

It looks a bit brighter in the picture than they actually are, because of the exposure I used - I wanted to make sure you could tell in the picture that they were lit up. They actually appear just about the same as the original light bulbs.

I of course took pictures and wrote up the process for anyone who might want to do the same: How to replace your handlebar control lights with LEDs
