I wasn't clear on what the light bars were and how they worked, so I followed the link. There's a special spot in the switch housing itself where the bar slots in. And to change them, you have to push the light bar *down* and out the bottom, then push the new one in from the bottom.

From that, I assume that means you have to take the switch out of the keyboard to switch the light. If that's a one time thing, that's one thing... though switching all 104+ keys on your keyboard would be a royal pain the ***. But if you wanted to regularly switch colours... For each and every switch, you'd have to pull the key cap off, pull the key switch out, push the current light bar out, push the new one in, put the key switch back in, put the key cap back on. Repeat 104+ times. If they changed the design to be able to change the light bar from the TOP, then that would save having to pull the switch. Slightly better, but still annoying to do for every single key.

No thanks, I'll opt for an RGB keyboard, instead.
