Looks good. I've seen these on ebay and wondered how well they would hold up. Does it seem like they're stuck pretty good? (I thought maybe they were just regular stickers)

Great writeup. I've had rimstripes on my bike for almost 6 months and a LOT of people comment on how well the bike shows up at night with them. I didn't use the sheets though. I used the 8mm roll of reflective red rim tape that I got from Cycle Gear. I recommend that stuff for EVERYONE! Anything that makes us more visible to cagers is a + !

I want to do this on my bike now. Do you guys think red tape would like okay on a blue bike or should I just go with blue tape?

I wonder if they make a clear/translucent tape that is more or less invisible in the day time, but is quite reflective at night under the scrutiny of vehicle and street lamps.
