The blue-gray mixte-frame, leather-trimmed bike by Silas Beebe of ID+ and Rob Tsunehiro for Oregon Manifest is beautiful in its own right.
A few extras aren't apparent on first glance, however. Shine a car light on this baby in the dark and the entire frame is visible, courtesy of Halo Coatings "retro-reflective" powdercoat.
In addition, the (recycled from scrap leather) panniers, designed by Paul Johnson of Blaq bags, have electro-luminescent strips that continually flash for even further visibility.
Panniers and messenger bags with electro-luminescent strips should be available to order by Christmas, Johnson says.
