I am in search of a small insulated two conductor wire for wiring bicycle lights. I think the insulated solid core igniter wire will work great, you know the stuff that gets thrown out after launch. Appreciate any links you can share.

Thanks,
Rod

I would recommend stranded wire for any application with high vibration or flexing.

Agree on stranded, if any joints needed, solder and cover with heat shrink tubing, it will last a long time.

Using the wire for the runs where the wire is fixed to bike frame. I searched but wasn't getting the results I was after. Just wanted to ask those who use this particular wire, found some places recently. And with our annual launch coming up, I will see what I can find there.
