MonkeyLectric has a bigger (full wheel) customizable LED system up on Kickstarter called Monkey Light Pro. I’m a huge fan of the Monkey Light M210 which is the smaller, $50, option. I hope over time they are able to bring the cost of the new “full wheel and awesome” down! $895 for wheel lights is going to be pretty steep for folks. (Though it is killer and I will start saving pennies now!)
