No matter how progressive your city is, bicycling at night is still dangerous. You’ve got cars and trucks whizzing by you, and expecting them all to be courteous and alert drivers is like expecting your porn to have a plot.
After finding success with its Revolights lighted wheels, Mission Bicycle Company wants to take cycling safety to a new level. The Lumen frame looks like it could very well be that level. The Lumen is an all-reflective bike frame that, thanks to a special blend of paint, glows bright white at night when light hits it. During the daytime, no one will be able to tell: the frame remains a dark charcoal gray. It’s a product that could save lives as well as look pretty slick. [Purchase]
