Hi Everyone,

Found this on another forum and it can be a nice edition to the Silverwing too.
Puts a glowing phosphor pin stripe on your sidewalls, and a small LED facing them.
This keeps the tape charged.  Looks good and good for visibility  from the side.

Looks a bit pee-wee Herman bike like to me glowing in the dark.

But amusing

There's far simpler ways to do this, you can buy special 3M reflective curved adhesive wheel stripes to fit on wheel rims, and my Dutch push bike has Schwalbe Big Apple tyres with reflective sidewalls.

The difference Meldrew, is that your reflective sidewalls need a light to reflect.

This is more complicated, but it builds in the light and guarantees a glow even on dark roads.

Also this works more like the superlumenova reflective markings on a glow in the dark watch.
When you give it a little light it will continue to glow for a bit after the light source is gone.

That's why the tape continues to glow even after it passes the stationary light source mounted on the bike.

Yes they do, as do the low tech maintenance free reflective front, side, and rear stickers on my helmet. The reflective chest, shoulders, back, and leg patches and trim on my summer and winter riding suits, and on a couple of pairs of my gloves. There's also large reflective panels on the hi-vis red, and hi-vis yellow vests I wear, and on my rain suit.

I also have two large reflective panels on the 'wings' of my Airflow screen.

So when a light source illuminates that large surface area of reflective material, it reveals the silhouette of a seated motorcycle/maxi rider.

IMHO adding two strange self illuminating green hoops are a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, and those garish wheels wouldn't look out of place in a Disney World Main Street Electric Parade. Smile
