Night Rider

Forget about reflectors. The Zulu bike from Pure Fix Cycles is coated with weatherproof, phosphorescent paint activated by sunlight. Ride it (or park it) for one hour in direct sun for an hour of glow-time after dark. The $399 fixed-gear bike has a frame of high-tensile steel and 700 x 28 tires designed for speed and comfort in urban settings. Pure Fix Cycles, which was founded by Zach Schau in 2010, sells fixed-gear bikes and accessories on its website and at bike shops around the country. --Adam Baer
