We've talked about many bike accessories over the years, but a recent find left us speechless—or rather, wondering what happens if you get in an accident with a mini lantern of sorts attached to your bike. It's better than batteries and you'd look quite steampunk chic, but holy cow. Is it safe?

We ran across this concept over at Yimmy's Yayo via Dude Craft and although there's no link to purchase the product, we'd just like to take a moment to enjoy the fact that this product exists somewhere in the world.

Now please don't try strapping a taper candle to your handlebars in attempts to replicate this set up. \We're sure it involves a few safety measures as well as that nifty glass window that lets the light through but keeps the breeze out (though obviously air gets in somewhere).

What do you think of the idea? Would you ever be comfortable riding with fire attached to your bike?
