Come on, Mom, please? It's a safety precaution. I mean, what's $400 when it could mean the difference between me cruising home fully visible and unscathed, or unseen and dumped at the ER with spokes impaling my leg and my nose turned upside down?

The Kilo, a fixie that burns neon green during post-daylight hours, marks Pure Fix Cycle's newest two-wheeled release, and the universe's first ever glow-in-the-dark bike. Allegedly. Not sure Dr. Who or the mad scientists of Japan would let that claim go uncontested. The bike's frame--and wheels if the buyer chooses--is bathed in a highly reflective, glow-in-the-dark paint that needs only an hour of sun exposure to ooze 60+ minutes of Ghostbustin' green revelry after dark. Nightriders, ravers, and people who'd really like a bike that can fly ET-style, but figure one that glows in the dark is an OK consolation prize, rejoice!

Pure Fix's fixie bikes are designed with a flip-flop rear hub that allows riders to choose between riding fixed gear or single speed. The Kilo's urban frame is made of tig-welded high tensile steel, with Zoom riser handlebars of alloy and steel, and a Vader Performance saddle. The basic Kilo package, available in sizes 47 cm to 61 cm, includes a Black Oury grip set and standard riser bars. For additional fees, Pure Fix will allow customization of grip color (including a glow-in-the-dark option) and handlebar color and type (i.e., riser, bullhorn, drop), as well as the additions of bar tape and lights. Pure Fix bikes ship 90% assembled, and should arrive 5 to 7 business days after order.
