People have been coming up with all sorts of flashy, bright accessories for cyclists to wear after the sun goes down. But why on Earth has it taken so long for someone to come up with a bike that glows in the dark itself?

Well, finally, that bike is here. The Kilo, by Pure Fix Cycles, is the first-ever glow in the dark bike. Just an hour in the sunlight, and the bike's solar-activated paint will keep you glowing all through your night ride.

The Kilo comes in several different sizes, leaving no rider under lighted, and beings at $399—which, for a bike that does way more than the average blinking bumper clip, seems like a pretty sweet deal. [PureFixCycles via Inhabitat]

Why don't they paint the tires with glow paint... Different colors around the sides of the tires would make a really cool pattern in motion too. If they just painted the outside most rim with, say, glow paint underneath and blue paint on the part that hits the road, it would be extremely obvious to see at night.
