    I think putting it on the wheels is more than adequate. You can also get black reflective tape here.

    What is better than getting your heart rate up and saddle time?

    Canadian Tire has the tape in the automotive trim section. I think it was $12 for more than enough.

    It's not *quite* as bright as the regular silver tape, but I would have been way to vain to put silver reflective tape on my road rims.

    and thanks for the 'canadian tire' reference... i think i'll spend a couple dollars to change some of the 'orange tape' i currenly have all over (also from canadian tire...) so that my bike looks a little less like a christmas tree...
    cheers.

    they're not that bright. the camera flash exaggerates the amount of light reflected.
    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. ;)
