Upon reflecting on typical bicycle reflective equipment, I have come to the conclusion that reflectors are unnecessarily heavy, ugly, expensive, and sometimes they even rattle. Here’s a nifty tip to do away with reflectors. Buy reflective tape from your bike or hardware store. Artistically cut and apply pieces of reflective tape to the frame and fork of your bike. Reflective tape works just as good as big old reflectors, but weighs far less, looks nicer, is easier to keep clean, costs less, and lasts longer.
