It's a rainy Saturday morning, the first in what seems like forever by Vancouver standards. The rain brings with it a subtle realization that Fall and Winter are quickly approaching. With our days growing shorter I realized it was time to write about this exciting new product from Cyglo. The Night Bright Tyre, tire for those of us in North America, is a revolutionary concept of adding LED lights to a bicycle tire. As an avid recreational cyclist myself, I can't help but think how much safer cycling would be with this product. The Night Bright Tyre's are powered by the perpetual circular motion of riding, so no more stopping to turn on and off your lights or worrying about dead batteries.

Now for years I've seen the same concept applied to inline skates, scooters, and luggage so I say bravo to James Tristram for bringing this to the cycling world. Unfortunately there is no word when we'll be able to order these, but you can get updates via twitter (@CygloTyre) or email.
