Bikedisc products from China (http://www.bikedisc.com) are now being made available by Bikedisc Company UK. The line-up includes football discs, yin-yang discs and other exotic designs, with screen-printing customisation an option. http://www.bikedisc.co.uk shows a prospective design for a Bike Week disc.
The ABS plastic discs can cover the full wheel or just a portion, and can revolve with the wheel or a central logo can be kept static to improve brand recognition. The discs come fitted with retro-reflective dots and are available in six sizes to fit most wheel diameters.
The retail price for standard designs is £4.99 with a minimum order quantity of 200.
Custom orders generally require a minimum of 1000 pieces and take 30 days.
The Wheel-Wizard from Gablemere Ltd is also sourced from China and is a plastic disc fitted with a multitude of LEDs, powered not with batteries but with a magnetic coil action. There’s no drag, but lots of pyrotechnic effects as the wheel spins.
The disc for a child’s wheel costs £24.99 retail, and it’s £29.99 for the adult version.
Gablemere is exhibiting at the BA’s International Cycle Convention, Harrogate, 26-28th May.Tel: 01905 779922
