I'v just built my 456 summer session, but I REALLY REALLY want this frame now.

How to hide a delivery this big from the wife?

    Saw that the other week on the pompino. Major case of the wants. Would probs need a lacquer though, going on the usual on one paint job strength.

    Been told Santa says I can have one. But spotted on the website "stays very strong for up to 6 months" so need to check on the lifetime of the glow. Would be great for riding to work over the winter. When a car knocks you off "So you didn't see the glowing bike because?"

    Makes me think of this, super cool 8) a glow in the dark commuting bike is also a really good safety idea.

    Awesome! :lol:

    From what I've herd of On-One's paint though, the car would not see you because the paint all blew off in a gust of wind.

    I have owned a glow in the dark bike.

    One of the first gen Niner Rip 9.

    Bit of a fail really.

    By the time the night had got dark enough to see it, the glow was gone.

    Only time is was really noticeable was when shooting through dark tunnels/bridges.
    The glow was then very distracting.

    be happy with what you got
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    Loads of cheap glow in the dark paint on eBay. Was thinking could touch up the rims since that ain't anything special :)
