Great idea.
I'm in provided I get 60% of the company and it makes me a substantial return for my £5 investment.

Beautiful stuff. Glad to see that they got so much support too.
I'm definitely getting those for my commuter once they're available for 26" MTBs.

Very clever idea, and it looks like he has amassed a lot more than his target for development into the market.

They look fantastic. Definately good for commuting.

Hopefully people won't crash into you with the WTF is that moment.

Looking again, all the shots are from the side where the cyclist is very visible, I wonder how visible he is from the front and rear concidering the lights are on the rim, so are (at least slightly) blocked by the tyre.

You will notice the guy has rear lights as well, not just the revo's.
I bet there would be a slight halo affect though from the wheels.

Here's your answer.

Keep in mind that those are 700c rims with really small tyres. There will probably be a wider version for MTBs, but I dread to think what it would look like on a bike equipped with a set of 26x2.2+ tyres
