    Interesting idea. I would be curious to see how well they hold up to normal wear and tear, as well as dirt and grime.

    Just don't tell the hipsters, they may question your commitment.

    1. it would be great if there were a reflective version 2. odd that the OP created an account just to tell us about this, no?
    would you rather weave through traffic, or sit in it?

    you can easily fashion yourself some reflective tape into rim tape.

    okay, it's not that easy, at least not with the good stuff.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    This is just automotive vinyl, the same stuff you see as lettering and logos on on the personal vehicles of small business owners. As long as you dont have a lot of road dirt and rain they'll hold up for a 6 months before looking like hell, and they are a PITA to take off when its time to change them. You will do just as good with a rattlecan job, ie. it's ghetto crap.

    Notice there are no ACTUAL pictures on the site.

    Never heard of it? Really? That's strange...being that you own the domain.
