I just wanted to add one more thing.

I later used the same reflective material to make a chainstay guard - which worked perfectly and added an additional reflective surface to the bike.

Thanks for posting my hack Matt!

I love your bike message on the back of the milk crate. I have this same signage on a t-shirt (in reflective green) that I got years ago from the Bicycle Transportation Alliance in Portland, Oregon. I believe they still sell these shirts.

"repurposes his tax dollars" How is this not stealing?

___Danno

@Tom Jones. It's not stealing. The material I used was from a badly damaged pylon which was smashed to pieces NOT the ones you see in the picture. Many of these broken/discarded pylons wind up in the ditch or littering areas far away from the road.

Those reflective stickers are not so spendy to the point where you have to "salvage" them from "busted" pylons.

Make 'em with a clear conscience: Pack of 10 for $5.99 http://www.harborfreight.com/10-piece-reflective-tape-97562.html

I love that mustache decal on your bike. I really want one, but that particular esty shot is all sold out. Now I am determine to find one.

@Jen:

Try this link. I think it might connect you to the handlebar mustache maker...

By the way, it's not a decal. It's made of solid wood and I love it! And only $7 too.
