Who's got a front reflector on their bike?

I've just noticed that I have a front reflector attached to the handlebar. I don't need this on, do I? I've got lights already.

Cheers, Reg.
So I can ditch the reflector, right? I have a Cateye EL-something-or-other on the front.

On my commuting bike i have reflectors as i need them when it gets dark. On my racer though, i don't need them as i am always out when its daylight. I go out with the club at the weekends and all the cyclists don't have reflectors, they probably think it weighs them down to much :becool:

Mate, a year! It was sort of pointing downwards so it was below the level of the h'bars, so didn't really notice it :becool:

I do notice things like chains snapping, tho...Cheers Fossy.

My old Dawes commuter has one that fixes on an angled bracket to the right fork. When I first got the bike, I thought it was an archaic accessory and removed it. Nowadays, knowing better, it wears it with pride :biggrin:.

As mentioned earlier, reflective tape on the forks and headtube.
And a VERY bright light...... but apparently that still makes me invisible to some people!

I left my front one on and cabled my computer onto it so it wasnt taking up any more space than if it wasnt there, I figured it might help a little bit. Ive got two front lights (Like mags a busch muller ixon IQ and then a blinkey) and a helmet light (Cateye el450) with reflective tape over the frame and over my entire helmet .... and STILL some stupid driver pulled out infront of me on the roundabout :biggrin: when it was my right of way.

Does anyone know the Annual carnival they have in Somerset, (Taunton, Shepton, Wells and Glastonbury) me thinks i need to be like the floats to get noticed!
