If there are two things cyclists have to worry about, they would be the weather and making sure cars can see them. That’s why the designers at GeoSpace Studio set about building a vehicle to resolve both issues. The FireFly is a recumbent tricycle outfitted with an LED-lit dome that keeps the rider visible and protected from the elements.

It looks pretty cool but not on the market as yet.

As if recumbent trikes somehow needed more visibility(!)

Pretty awesome UFO-style bike bling, though I'm not sure how it fairs (see what I did there?) aerodynamically...
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Assuming it weighs a few hundred grams then.... I'll have one :)
You're only as successful as your last 1200...
