I am an avid cyclist and I have had quite a few encounters with cars in the past. I currently go to a small business school in the Northeast and a few of my classmates and I are creating an invention to reduce these encounters. The idea is a quick release attachment that connects to a seatpost and has a boom arm about 22 inches in length that extends to the left-hand side of the bike. On the end of this arm will be a small strobe that will serve as a reflector during the day and can be engaged during riding in darker conditions. The arm will be pliable as not to break or throw the cyclist off balance in the event of contact. It is a simple device, but we need some input as to the validity of the idea and its potential. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
