So, actually that is the six buck view........one side. I will probably get lightweights for the spokes down the line.
I figure that like a motorcycle, a bike doesn't need all that much to worry about side profile visibility. Your danger comes from vehicles pulling out in front of you or overtaking you from behind (well, at least on a bicycle).
There is no front or rear profile------sit two blocks down the street, have a friend sit at a stop sign and hold up a pencil. The pencil will cover you. Period. That is how skinny you are. Then, have your friend recieve a "text" and glance your way. You're dead.
A need for side visibility is real, although minimal to front or rear visibility. A bicycle doesn't present a large enough front or rear profile to rely on "passive" defense. This has to come from "active" defense.........lights.
I feel that my $12 investment in side reflection protects me enough to be comfortable with it. Danger from the right or left doesn't realistically exist to warrant any further effort. Although the spoke tape will be super cool, a few paychecks down the road.
I do have front, rear active protection (lights, blinking lights, red, white and safety orange tee shirts). I refrain from that discussion seeing as to how my lights cannot be seen from the International Space Station. Yes, the beacon from the Lexor still outshines me.
