I have this picture here:
I haven't done any text and haven't linked it officially because it's not framed properly. I will probably redo it later this spring.
Anyway. Here is the explanation:
- On the lower rear, I have sewn 4 amber reflectors and 3 red ones, all SAE (automotive) 2.25 x 4.5 in reflectors.
- On the rear left corner (on top of that white side line), I have bent a T-bracket so it attaches at the top of the frame.
It it attached to the frame tubing (underneath the cloth) with two pipe collars. That way, it looks clean from the outside and I haven't weakened the frame structure.
I cut a small hole in the sewing beteen the top and side panels, so the angle goes through it nicely.
On top of the trailer, I have bolted a piece of 1 1/8" aluminium tubing onto the bracket. It's hard to see on the picture because the tubing is "inside", on top of the fabric. The tube is about 20 cm long. Tube is angled similarly to my seatpost and to the post I have behind my bike.
I then attach up to three Vistalite SuperNebula taillights on that tube.
BTW, the same Vistalites can be installed either there, at the rear end of the Piccolo trailercycle, or of the tandem, the touring bike or the commuter. The fact I can move the taillights from one bike to another saves me a fortune...
