Would you use electroluminescent panels on our bikes for night time riding as proposed in the web link article?

Put on your lights and reflective tape on your helmet and shoes, and if they can't see that, you're hosed anyway.

From behind, my crew in the 508 said what stood out at night the most was the stick on reflectors on the backs of my shoes, btw.

Too complicated, I think.

Rishi Grewal won the 24 Hours of Moab on one of these. It reminds me of some glow in the dark toys we had as kids.
Tig, you at 24 of Moab this year? (nm)js5280

I don't need it often enough to make it worth the money to me now. If I still lived in LA and rode down Santa Monica Boulevard, though, I'd snap it up.

...if it weighs next to nothing, is reliable and weatherproof, and doesn't get in my way, then sure, I'd give it a chance. I ride at night routinely, and run with a dual headlight, three blinkies, a reflective triangle, and more. It's enough, but it's a lot of stuff to hassle with.

When there's a product I can check out, I'll check it out.
