Yeah, I saw that stuff hanging on the rack and seriously gave it some thought, until I looked at how thick that stuff is! I tell you, if that roll is the smallest it can get, I can see why it won't work well on a bike. You would almost have to cut it into thin strips and line then parallel with the tubes you're putting it down on.

Did you notice that they also have a red/silver reflective tape as well in a roll, similar to the black/yellow? I almost got that, but figured I like the black and yellow much better.
