Glow In The Dark Bike – light up the night

Glow in the dark bike
Cycling home at night can be dangerous, but necessary. There are all sorts of precautions we like to take, whether that be reflectors, lights, or otherwise. However, that doesn’t always mean we feel like we’re going to be seen. You could always deck out your bicycle so that anyone within a half mile radius can see you, but you might want to go with something a little more subtle.

The Glow In The Dark Bike will make sure that even if your front and rear warnings aren’t visible, the rest of the bike will be. This $400 bike is a single speed with 50mm wheels. It has a tensile steel frame, and was fitted with a Zoom seat post, Oury grips, a Pure Fix urban saddle, and more. This is a neat idea, but I wonder why they wouldn’t just sell the wheels. You could just spray paint the sides of your bike with glow in the dark paint if you didn’t want to pay this much.

  • Unless this bike manufacturer has come up with something,"new" in glo-in-the-dark" technology, then just like the "glo-in-the-dark" spray and brush on paints, the "glow" of any light source charge, is going to last, effectively, for about 30 minutes.
    3M, and others, have made the "glo-in-the-dark" tapes, reflectors, and markers now for many years and still all of them only "glow in the dark", for less than an hour.
