    A reflective vest all can love!

    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    The hipsters will hate it, in an ironic sense.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    36 2.75" 3m spoke reflectors - $26.00 http://www.amazon.com/Coolhubcaps-Gl.../dp/B003S7ECTC

    String vest - $0.00

    Make one yourself.

    That really isn't far fetched, especially if you can crochet.

    Looks a little too pricey for $80. Compared to $10 for a lime yellow vest with 2 inch wide reflective stripes on it at the hardware store, and $5 for reflective tape at WalMart, not a good deal.

    Don't even need to crotchet - those spoke reflectors have a slit down one side, just cut to size and "clip" round the string vest.

    I like the idea for the summer. A lime green vest is excellent but they get real hot in the summer. In fact, I prefer the lime green vest over this fish net but only during the winter fall and spring.

    For $80, I want a active lighting set up, not some strips of reflective material.
