Get ready for the world's first glow-in-the-dark bike! The 'Kilo' cycle, which was designed by Pure Fix Cycles, is a bike that features a glow-in-the-dark frame adorned with a special paint that needs only an hour of sunlight in order to glow.

Created after months of experimentation, Kilo is part of the Pure Fix Cycle's GLOW series. This glow-in-the-dark bike features a frame that can be painted with solar-activated paint on either side; this special paint can be applied to the wheels as well. During the day, Kilo's frame is a bright yellow color but at night, it glows with a fluorescent green hue. Other features include a "flip-flop rear hub" that allows riders to change from single speed to fixed gear. Stats for Glow-in-the-Dark Bikes Trending: Older & Buzzing
