    My £120 bargin schwinn mesa gs (nice to get trade prices :smile: ) sold my road bike for £60 and ended up with this , now i just need to crack the 100 ;) find it a nicer ride than my road bike plus i can nip up onto the pavement at red lights etc nip across fields ;)

    Bontrager do tyres with a reflective strip in them. I've got some. They're lovely and shiny.

    It looks a bit manky on the top but it looks intact. I'd get some decent 5 inch mdf stuff next time you decorate or do your carpets

    Got those randonneurs for my Commuter MTB as well - the reflective stuff has survived 12 weeks of commuting in all weathers and the tyres seem tough, if rather heavy (well compared to Pro Race 2's on my other 2 bikes)

    You got a great deal with that bike. :biggrin:

    I've got a reflective strip on my commuter bike tyres - Vredestein Perfect Moires. Funny how much the camera flash brings these things out.
