Visibility / Flags / Etc...

edited April 2013 in Accessories
I have the rover Silver frame & the rest black.

I seriously doubt I will be riding at night.
I still have concerns about visibility. The trike sits pretty low making it harder to see me. I am thinking Fluorescent colors & some other sites have recommended reflective.

I do not drive, what is easier for a driver to see in the daytime? Reflective strips or Fluorescent colors?
I see some people here have multiple flags on a single whip, where did you get the flags? Please share.

Thanks :shock:

  • On BROL (another trike forum) talks about flags all the time: http://www.bentrideronline.com/messageboard/forumdisplay.php?f=13

    Personally I love my large 'Purple Sky Flag' - lots of color choices, streamers to catch the eye, and more http://purpleskyflags.com/

    Good luck :)

  • After getting the Daughter in law sewing....
    I have this so far...
  • I say go with as much dazzle as you can. I was coming off the highway the other evening (dusk). There was a bicyclist coming along perpendicular to me wearing a medium blue shirt and back pack. He did have light fore and aft but a fluorescent shirt, jacket, or vest would have made him easier to see. I didn't see his lights until I was behind him and passed him.

    Have fun with your trike. I wear a fluorescent highway worker windbreaker and have 4 flags when I ride and lights in my spokes and a rear flashing light. I want to be seen.

  • A good flashing multi-led taillight is a must, but I also run dual flags courtesy of http://www.bikeflagsusa.com. Dennis custom designed me a USMC flag and I fly it next to the Stars & Stripes model he sells. Excellent quality, stout fiberglass pole. The nylon is thick enough to be tough and so they don't flap in the breeze like a really lightweight flag does. Plus, they're pretty.

  • I ordered one from Dennis(www.bikeflagsusa.com) last night; can't wait for it to get here. Told him I would like main color to be orange to match the Rambler and yellow/silver as he saw fit. Couple of e-mails and it was a done deal.
  • You will be very happy with you new flag from Dennis at bikeflagsusa,com he does quality work and you will enjoy it shortly, I love my high vis. green flag. :o :mrgreen:
    Happy Trikings !
  • My wife & I just got a pare of stars & stripes flags form them & they are grate
  • My flag came today. A bit different than I had expected, but it works even better the way Dennis made; it REALLY look good on the trike. Looks like it will be good in low light too with all the reflective bits in it.
