I have their LED's and intended to put the power pucs on my bike... even bought them.   Discovered they were held in place with velcro.  Velcro?  Seriously?   That kind of money for... velcro?   Sent the power pucs back... kept LED's and remote.

But T, the installation instructions say it's Industrial Strength Velcro...  :o

Did you try it? Guarantee it will not separate without substantial effort that is well beyond the application requirements. And this is the best fastening option if you have to remove for service.

I  am  going  to install the LEDs  on the wheels  Sunday. I have seen the instructions but
 what I wanted to see how many LED strips were needed to get that dramatic  result
 shown on their videos. thanks

I have stated this before, and I will continue with my thought on this. First of all your attaching something in an area that is prone to heat variance,  the vast majority of adhesives will break down under these conditions. Industrial or not I am not willing to put my passenger, anybody around me, or myself at risk so I can have LED's in my wheels. The ONLY way I would trust a setup is to have it attached using fasteners, period. This setup is just asking for trouble.

My other issue with this setup is it simply looks terrible, I don't think have RGB LED's offset the huge ugly disk stuck to the wheels. Not my cup of tea for sure, a little more engineering put into this setup and it could look, and function a whole lot better.
