    Glowing Night Bike (Blackberry Commercial)

    I watched the Blackberry commercial where a group of people were riding at night on glowing bikes and I couldn't figure out how they made the whole bike glow. So, I went google'ing...

    Behold, how to make a "night bike".

    Neat stuff. They're using some super-glow-in-the-dark paint and charging the paint with black lights. The author says the glow can last up to 12 hours.

    I wouldn't paint my entire bike, but it might be worth it to paint some trim for night rides.

    That would be interesting if it lasted that long. It would make somewhat of a theft deterrent as well. Someone riding off with a glowing bike would be easier to spot....kinda like that paint they use in bank bags that stains....

    this is so cool... I just got a 70's Schwinn Continental that I've been thinking about doing this to. I'm just worried about the durability of the paint. I've also seen stick on reflector/glow strips that stick on the top and lower tubes, like in this video. Does anybody know where to buy these???
