The Flash bar tape looks great for a commuter or other bikes likely to be ridden after dark. Vaguely on-topic, too, for its similarity to the ubiquitous red reflective tape of the 1970s. But nicer, I think, and so much less likely to be cursed by future collectors.

The California Ribbon, on the other hand -- purely appalling. Why, Aldo, why would you want that? The emetic in your first aid kit losing its strength? If we have flowers like that here, I haven't seen them. And I don't want to.
