Bright Bike v2.0
After a year of testing we are releasing a new version of the wildly successful Bright Bike.
The new kit is easier to install, adapts better to everyone's desire to style their bike individually, and is now being made availalbe as purchaseable DIY Kits. Everything is pre cut for quick and easy installation.
There are two styles: Pinstripe and Caterpillar. The pinstripe covers the key reflective points in long lean streaks of reflection. The Caterpillar turns your main tubes into bands of reflective safety.
Everyone's favorite color is black: it is incognito on an urban black bike during the day, and bright white under headlights at night. A close second are red and yellow. We just got in some white, which is slightly pearlescent, and have a light blue, dark blue, green, and orange.
You can see the full selection and order at BrightThread.com.
