    Maybe they could paint them to look like taxis in the future! That would actually be kind of cool.

    Seriously, why don't they make it reflective? reflective frames and the inside of the rims?

    Ahem. From my perspective, as a Long Islander, who relies on the Long Island Rail Road to get in and out of Manhattan, it makes a big difference. The Trains are crowded, and bike are only allowed on "Off Peak", or non-rush-hour Trains.

    On Tuesday the 4th, for instance, I used a Citibike, to get to an Art Supply store. I was able to return the Citibike at 31st and 8th, and take a train home, leaving at 6:16 PM. If I had my own Bicycle, I would have had to wait until 8:42 PM, or two and a half hours, for an Off Peak hours Train.

    It's New York City, there's a method behind the madness.
