    GLO PAINT on yer bike



    http://www.glopaint.com/index.htm

    Saw this on Digg, looks pretty cool. One spray paint can should run you about 10 bucks and it should last about 8-12 hours. Users are saying it contains traces of tritium though, so could potentially be dangerous.

    Short of that, you can have your bike professionally painted glow in the dark. Would last much longer than 8 hours. Look for auto/industrial painters that use the House of Kolor paint system - they have 5 or so glow in the dark colors.

    there was a thread about this topic a while back and if I remember correctly that paint should glow for much longer than 8-10 hours and isn't dangerous because the tritium is encapsulated in a polymer matrix or something like that. unless this is a different paint that they are talking about but using the same image

    no...if it needs to be exposed to light to charge, it doesn't contain tritium. the site says all the paint needs to be exposed in order to glow.

    methinks these 'users' who claim the paint contains tritium have no idea what they're talking about, but want to sound like they do.
