Brooklyn designer Anthony “Tonky” Clune wants to get noticed. He also wants cyclists to be seen so he’s got these great decal packs to dress up your bike to be highly visible to motorists and look like something out of Tron.
Here is a recent article from the Brooklyn Paper and thanks for the interview and shout out.
Red Hook cyclist will make your bike glow in the dark

Brooklyn’s streets would be safer if all of the cyclists looked like extras from “Tron.”
That’s the vision of Anthony Clune, a Red Hook bike rider and designer who has created a reflective armor that transforms two-wheelers into glowing neon rides.
Bikes decked out in the decals resemble futuristic vehicles ripped from science fiction movies — and they’re certainly more visible to motorists.
“This will keep your brain inside your skull where it belongs,” said Clune, 31, who goes by the name Tonky. “It would be a dream come true if I could prevent an accident.”
Called RydeSafe, Tonky’s diamond-shaped stickers are made from the same heavy-duty decals used on emergency vehicles and they fit on frames, rims, seats and helmets — potentially illuminating more parts of bikes and their riders than lights.

Congratulations to Tonky for reaching his fundraising goal on kickstarter.
