The ability to weave through traffic jams makes cycling the perfect mode of transport ion for city dwellers. But such popularity comes at a cost as well, with car-bike incidents increasing steadily over the last few years, especially in populated urban areas like New York City and San Francisco. To address this issue and to promote a safer atmosphere for cycling, https://missionbicycle.com” target=”_blank”>MISSION BICYCLE COMPANY created the https://missionbicycle.com/lumen” target=”_blank”>“Lumen” Reflective Bikes line. While there are reflective tapes, belts and vests to help drivers see cyclists at night or in low visibility areas. They are inadequate or described as a “2D solutions to a 3D problem” by the folks from MISSION since those reflective materials were made with flat surfaces in mind. However, with help from http://halocoatings.com/” target=”_blank”>Halo Coatings, MISSION created a powder coating reflective paint process that covers all the nooks and crannies on a bike frame. Plus, every bike is put together to specification by hand with a 50-year quality guarantee by MISSION.
Available in three models, one single-speed and two geared designs, all made from hand-welded 4130 double-butted chromoly steel frame, the “Lumen” Reflective Bikes by MISSION BICYCLE COMPANY are available now as its latest http://kck.st/OqXbXe” target=”_blank”>KICKSTARTER project with the goal to raise $15,000 USD in the next 29 days.
