The reason for the double pics is to illustrate what I call the "Stealth Reflector" concept and the use of Reflective tape on the wheels instead of CSPC plastic reflectors.
Basically the idea behind the "Stealth Reflector" is to use the same color (or reasonably close) tape as the frame so that it blends during the day, yet provides reflective properties at night.


Please keep in mind that reflectors or reflective tape is no substitute for lights and are to be viewed and used as supplements to a lighting system not in place of one.


edit: I started a new thread here so that this one can return to topic
