    I have used edecals.com for some decals. they looked great and even sent extras. I was pretty impressed with their professionalism. I don't know about reflective, but I know they have mirror finish.

    I used a kit from Applied Graphics that are made for motorcycle helmets. The material really flashes up well when light hits it. You will get plenty of pre-cut pieces that are about the right shape and lengths for the various tubes of the frame.

    Fresh from her first winter commute. My phone was cold so it took a really crappy picture.

    This is what happened to my bike earlier that day. The sidewalk plows got to her

    My Nishiki , it's my only bike, she's well worn but she moves. When I'm able I plan on getting a new bike and just fixing this one up until then she's my ride.

    I just put these studded tires on that I bought "used" (basically brand new - no missing studs) for $40. We'll see how it goes - everything was covered in ice today.

    All ready for poor weather!

    Wow! That's pretty incredible. I couldn't think of anything else you'd need. A swiss army of bikes! Nice job.

    Here is my 2004 Kona Cinder Cone frame converted into a commuter. This bike has been a front suspension 26" cross-country racer, a rigid single speed 69'er (for racing) and now this...
    kona_as_commuter.jpg

    I put it together like this over the past few weeks with spare parts from the "bin". I did recently purchase the Velo Orange touring bars for a more upright ride but everything else comes from my parts bin of miscellaneous odds and ends. Interesting point: The fenders are Planet Bike 29'er fenders. Adjusting the rods makes them fit 26'ers just fine with an added benefit of actually giving a fuller radius of fender around the wheels. Much more splash protection and kinda cool looking for fenders.

    that nishiki is nice, but what's up with the brake lever placement? seems really awkward. repaired a bike that had the levers like that recently and test riding it was weird as hell, but his was really janky, saddle sloping way forward, etc... so I couldn't narrow down just how weird the levers were.
