Kids love things that light up. Parents hate the idea of their kid out riding their bike, and drivers not seeing them. That’s why Phantom Frames’ bright bicycle frames seem like an incredibly cool idea. The story of the Phantom Ice and Ghost frames starts with the owner’s son Jack. When Jack’s bicycle light stopped working, he said he wished the entire bicycle would light up. That was the proverbial light bulb, or in this case, Light Pipe. Working with local bicycle designer Ken Spaulding, prototyping led to using polycarbonate tubing fitted with LEDs. From there, the frame evolved into the bike you see here with a front triangle machined from polycarbonate mated to a steel rear end.
Phantom Frames are almost ready for production, light it up after the break.
