Rear light brake light hooked up to sensors in the magura levers, nice.

When I was growing up, and going into Halfords to add bling to my racer, they had a bicycle brake light that had a detector wire that wrapped around the exposed inner at the brake mechanism, presumably sensing the shortening of the cable and displaying what at the time would have been an almost unnoticeable incandescent red bulb.
