Mandiberg covered a bicycle in retroreflective vinyl. The above pic combines two shots of the same bike – left side taken with flash, right side without. Wow!

We used Scotchlight 680 vinyl. When the bicycle is in the beam of a light (like a car’s headlight, or a camera’s flash,) it reflects back super bright. When it is not in the light, it is just jet black. Ideally, it will aid in nighttime bicycle safety.

Likely to shatter previous bicycle safety records! (do they have those?) – Bright Bike
