The Kilo Glow, by Purefix Cycles, and the 8Bar Bike

As a former bike messenger, I like to keep an eye on the latest in bike tech. And the Kilo Glow, by Purefix Cycles, and 8Bar Bike, both sport a unique paint job that make them noticeable in traffic. I used orange reflective tape that I purchased on Canal Street when I was riding. I think the Chinatown vender charged me five bucks. It was worth every penny.

  1. At the moment I use (and trust) the ‘Kryptonite New York 3000 Lock’ if I want to leave my bike really secure. And as a security nut I also have a motorbike ‘O’ ring concreted into the garage floor. It’s not until you lose a bike that you realise you have lost a best friend, (do I need therapy)?

    I have been an avid cyclist for over 40 years (switching from a hand built Claude Butler racing frame to ‘tearaway’ mountain bikes). But what I would have given in the past to purchase a frame that glows in the dark. It has to be the way ahead as a safety feature, cyclists (over here) are becoming an endangered species!

    Yours Aye.

  2. Since we cycle the back roads of OK, I would love to have a glow in the dark bike. My husband could just ad a new bike to his other bikes and be perfectly happy.

  3. We used the 3M reflective tape on the rear down-tubes, though they were slender, and on the back of the seat. Also a Leg-Light in the dark.
    On the Ducati, the rear light, I think, is enough…
