First time I've regretted my 16 inch wheels.

These won't fit!

I am always delighted with the quiet, retiring nature of cyclists, and their eco stance.

Oh, there are still plenty of retiring cyclists in London, despite Darwinian pressure

They're only like 6" long. They mount on your spokes. They should probably fit....

I know I want one now!

if i was 10 years younger, i would totally put down a couple hundred dollars on those...and i'm only 27, lol

keep in mind that you need multiple pieces per wheel to have the full effect

Ha! And they say a folder looks funny!

One thing for sure, you would certainly be visible at night.

We've got some of those monkey lights at my bike shop. They really are as fun as they look!

One thing though, I once took a pair out for a ride at Critical Mass, and for a moment my friends commented that it was making a shimmering rainbow swastika. That's a bit iffy
