A San Francisco bicycle company has found a new way to keep bike riders safe after dark.

It's come up with a bike that glows like the sun when headlights hit it.

The Lumen is the latest bike from Mission Bicycle Company.

The frame, fork and rims have all been sprayed with a reflective coating.

The closer you get to it, the greater the intensity of the reflection.

A complete bike costs about $1,200.

The company is handling pre-orders through Kickstarter.
