Probably a CPSC or DOT requirement

There are a lot of safety mandates placed on bike manufacturers by the federal government. I'm sure reflectors on wheels, pedals, and front and rear on the frame are one of those mandates. Not a bad idea if you have ever come across a kid riding a bike at night on an unlit street. Darn near invisible if there are no street lights. Often the only thing you see is the reflectors on the bike and the moving ones are ususally unmistakeable.
