One of you tech computer guys post up the photo of it. I love the way the wheels look like they just float there.

I want one.

I think that is cool. In the comments, most people wanted it filled with lights. I think it is good as is. A clear bike is not less visible IMO. I guess it is sort of a commuter being single speed and all. In my neck of the woods, single speeds just don't cut it

The comments are pretty negative! So prototype #1 of a completely new material for bikes isn't yet a finished product.

Get the prescription right and you can have some really big fish.

CK, c'mon you know the build was more about proof of concept than a rideable prototype.

What gives me pause is the lack of curves. Implies that complex shapes my not be possible at this time.

However, if they are shooting for a low production cost bike straight tubes my not be a negative.

Polycarbonate ?? Looks solid, hollow would be too weak. A single LED light at the end of each straight would make the entire frame glow. Now use differnt color lights to blend in with each other and that'll be a piece of night riding art.
