Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

reflective stuff

i have a black crumpler fux deluxe with a green stripe and want to cover the green with a silver reflective material. i thought about tape, but that would prolly fall off pretty quit. anyone know how to find the stuff that is already on the bottom of the bag? its like nylony reflecty stuff. id love to find some big fat strips of it.

www.identi-tape.com. Get the sew-on, rather than the iron-on fabric- more durable.

I added several 2" strips to my bag.

On my motorcycle I used www.streetglo.net reflective tape on the back of my leather backrest for the passenger. It's been on now for 2 years and hasn't come off. I expected it to fall of or curl up but it hasn't. I expect it is lasting because the seat is not constantly flexing (backrest not actual seat).

I was given a pair of old road worker pants with big strips of reflective stuff on them. Ripped out the reflective strips and sewed it on my Pac bag. Perfect stuff! So my tip is to go to a Goodwill store and find some vests or pants that has those reflective strips on them. Rip them off and sew it on your bag. Cheap and not very complicated.

I have used helmet reflective tape which is good. I also just use a flashy light I got for $5 which clips to the bag. Seems to be more effective than reflective stuff for me.

Use the stuff they put on the back of semi's and trailers... can't remember the name of it, but I picked up about three rolls of the stuff for 12 dollars here in ATL.
