Hey, who is that dude on the glowing bike?

I couldn’t resist posting this picture of mountain bike pioneer Gary Fisher riding a glow in the dark Biomega MN02. The bike, designed by well known London based designer Marc Newson, is the only one I know of with a glow in the dark frame, which I think is a neat idea. To learn more about Biomega and the company’s collaboration with well know product designers such as Newson, check out this 2000 Wired article.

    I know of a similar glow-in-the-dark Biomega, it’s the eyecatcher in the window of a shop nearby. The shop hasa website: http://www.a-bikes.be/

    That glow in the dark bike sounds fun! I wonder how many folks know that Gary glows in the dark too?
    He has at least one reflective suit made using Lumatwill(TM) from the folks at Dashing Tweeds:

    (I have no relation with Dashing Tweeds – just some cloth samples and someday want one of their coats too!)
    Cheers
