Chic Safety - Interesting reflective stickers
Safety gear often looks clunky. These vine stickers are the best I've seen for safety without the dork factor.
At $4.95 from Team Estrogen I think they're worth trying out. I think they could look good on a helmet, a bag, or possibly the bike as shown, particularly on the top tube of a mountain bike where the handlebars often hit and chip the paint. There the sticker would serve double-duty protecting both the frame and you!
Ultimately these are probably better than the clunky safety gear - drivers see variation better than blobs; patterns, lines, and dots all help. Plus they're more attractive than the reflective duct tape look!
