A Glow-in-the-Dark Commuter Bike

The new Glow Bikefrom English Cycles looks incredible during the day but it absolutely pops at night. Built for a Seattle customer, the commuter bike features a “Glowbee” clear top coat that glows in the dark. Disc brakes, 11-speed internal gear hub, Gates Carbon Drive system, tubeless tires, full fenders, an Ergon seat post and Niner eccentric bottom bracket complete the build. Total weight with pedals is just over 23 pounds.

On a personal note, we are elated to see Rob English back in the shop following a horrid crash in a bike race last summer that left him hospitalized and out of work for several months. Still healing, Rob is working with one arm in a sling due to a badly damaged bicep muscle. That’s true grit. See more images of his Glow Bike below, and check out some of his previous belt drive bikeshere.
