Like, Who Needs Lights on a Fixie?

OK, so why is that top bar sticking out either end? Turns out that there is an LED integrated into each end, evidently solar powered too, though I can't see any solar cells. Or perhaps you can open it up and fill the thing with a dozen D batteries.

I am probably opening myself up to significant abuse to note that fixie riders usually don't encumber their bikes with lights any more than they do with other marginally useful inventions like brakes.

But it is an elegant integration of light and bike.

It is being sold by Areaware for $500, which seems pretty cheap considering that a leather seat alone is worth about a hundred bucks. Via Dvice
