Yeah, you’ve heard it before. We all have: “Why don’t they make the whole plane out of the black-box material?”
Now, before you decide to inform the next observational stand-up comic onstage that his mother was the unfortunate result of fornication between a monkey and a cantaloupe, distract yourself with this question so that the nice jester can finish the set in peace: if lights are so important to bicycle safety, then why not just make an entire bike that lights up?
Enter Hammacher Schlemmer with The Glow Bike. Few items have ever quite so closely stuck to what it says on the tin. This single-speed bicycle’s frame needs only an hour of daytime sun exposure to cause its phosphorescent paint to glow in the dark, making it impossible for fellow riders, walkers or drivers to miss at dusk for up to a full hour.
Not only is it luminous, but it also happens to be a comfortable ride. It supports a less-aggressive standard riding position than similar road bikes thanks to its horizontally oriented handle bars, adjustable seat, and tough tubular steel fabrication. The Glow Bike stops reliabley every time with a single front brake lever.
