Cheap side stripes ;-)
« on: 02, June, 2013 - 20:17:03 »
I had to remove my reflective side stripes to get back the road.  I however still wanted some colour - I looked into getting some matching non reflective patterned strip made (I did look but the cost was way too much), so I found this to be an acceptable workaround:



Yellow electrical insulating tape!

Purists may bork, and close up it may not be perfect, but from a few meters it looks great, and is certainly better than none at all :-)

I have purchased the reflective side stripes from Chas. if using the C5 at night as I do then the reflection from car headlights could be a life saver, they are there for safety. Be safe be seen.
