The Puma Urban Mobility folding bicycle will be available in a "glow in the dark" edition this spring, according to the WIRED Gadget blog.

Glow in the dark Puma Urban Mobility bicycle
Puma's Urban Mobility bikes are equipped with Shimano's 8 speed Alfine, a lightweight rack (22 lb weight limit), disc brakes and a tiny handlebar basket for wallets and cellphones. It looks like the glow-in-the-dark edition will also come with a tail light and headlight.

A really unique feature is the integrated cable lock that doubles as the bike's downtube. If a thief cuts the cable lock, the bike is rendered non-ridable. Puma's "bike centers" will only repair the cable for registered owners of the bike.

The Puma Urban Mobility Bicycle is available in the United States at Puma Stores in Washington, DC; Santa Monica, CA; San Francisco; San Diego; Portland, OR; Philadelphia; New York City; Los Angeles; Las Vegas; Chicago; Boston and Austin, TX. Visit Puma Urban Mobility and navigate their nasty flash menu to find bike dealers world wide.

That's fantastic. The Slingshot-esque 'downtube' cable put to better use. It's sorta like the head units that are useles when ripped from a car.
 
that is a very ingenuous design. I have been racking my brain for the last couple of weeks to come up with something like that.
 
Pete, THANK YOU -- I couldn't for the life of me remember the name of the original downtube cable bike.
 
I just picked a PUMA bike last night in NYC and heard from one of the sales reps there that the "glow-bike" will be out around August of '08 and will retail for $2,400. Also, it will be single-speed. Ohh, and the process of "glowy-fying" is a difficult and costly process. Hmm... Oh also, it will come with a clothing set of a jacket-gloves-hat, or something like that.
 
Thanks for that, Anon. I'd love to see photos of you with that bike sometime!
