I may not have the one-line wonder up my sleeve to “wow” you. I can, however, educate you.
The process featured here is a good exampled of what goes into manufacturing a next-generation vehicle. The product is an engineering and design marvel.
Carbon fiber isn’t necessarily replacing the metal in the i3, but acts as bracing and an energy deflector all over the safety cell, which allows BMW to use less of the heavier steels and more lightweight aluminum throughout the car.
What are your thoughts on the BMW I3?
If you can't buy LifePaint we have a solution for you.
We use reflective tape that is close to the same color as the paint on our bikes at the office. It's not that noticeable during the daylight, but when car lights hit our bike, it's just like this spray, only you don't have to re-apply every week.
It's held up for a few years on a daily commuter bike. We also have tape from the same company on the spokes. It's awesome. Use reflective tape that is close to the same color as the paint on your bike. Have a safe trip!
