I would not be ashamed to ride this. In fact, I would enjoy it.

Full-sized here.

At least no one can use the “I didn’t see you” argument.

^ Dude! That was the first thing I thought of when I saw it. (How sad is that?)

Neon bike: the only man-made object visible from the Moon

AAAH! Don’t look at full-size. It burns!

Reminds me of the southsider with the PennDOT green frame. That’s pretty bright for a morning commute.

IT has long been my dream to own a bike as obnoxious as I am :)

Do you need special lube to keep the chain so yellow?

I imagine pee works well.

oh my god, you could mount UV lights to the cross bar, seat, wheels and light yourself up brilliantly at night. I’d put rhinestones on the spokes, for added sparkle. You can never be too bright or sparkley.

Such an exciting bicycle, thank you msprout!

edited to add – I just realized there are no fenders. Forget rhinestones on the spokes, rhinestone crusted fenders with UV lights to shine down on the wheels and back on the frame. That’s where it’s at.

@RF…’own a bike as obnoxious as I am’. Will someone with less tact than me please insert joke here…

that is just a tad brighter than the new version of the Big Orange Bike I am currently working. But it does give me something to shoot for.

I’d say the blood bike is more obnoxious (and just as hip), especially with the “I LOVE DIRTY GIRLS” sticker.

I’ll have my new bike soon, probably the second week of October, in time for Fall season..I’ll have a DK Asterik, and as soon as i get it it’s being completely torn down and everything but the spokes,pedals and bars will be painted House of Kolor Neon Green…It’ll be most obnoxious…And i cannottttt wait!

nothing will top my friend’s downhill bike. he took the frame i sold him and got it powdercoated flouro yellow with metallic green flakes. it looks like burning.

the frame in sunlight. no flash.

close up darkened enough to see the metallic flake.

Mine will be like that give or take..I was going to do fluorescent red….But my friend who works at a body shop called to price the neon green, and 3 days later it showed up…The shop ordered it assuming ‘pricing’ meant ‘ordering’…So green it is!

get a metallic flake in it. in the sunlight the flakes really make the thing glow.

I think this winter I’ll strip my shitty spraypaint job and get it powdercoated hot pink/metallic flake. Can’t redo the stripes in powdercoat, but oh well.

noah, you can do a fade though.

That’s what I was thinking I might do. Not as striking as stripes but a decent compromise….
