Rock The Bike

The Down Low Glow

Riding through the Mission District in San Francisco one night, Paul gets stopped about the neon blue ground effects lights on his cargo bike, and it leads to the first sale of the Down Low Glow. It’s the invitation needed to call this Social Biking passion a business: “Fossil Fool”. In the following years, Fossil Fool and then Rock The Bike sell nearly 3000 Down Low Glow lighting kits until pulling the product from the market in 2009 for battery safety concerns. It was a hit amongst bike commuters looking for extra respect on the roads. The product was picked up in major blogs such as WIRED, Gizmodo, and TreeHugger.
