Tim,
Are the good folks at Bike Arlington passing out blinky lights at Lee/Laurel on November 4th when it starts to get dark? Do you need volunteers?

Just looking forward to restocking.

Magic Eight Ball says "Outlook good."

Check back the next week or so for a call for volunteers.

Sort of on the same subject...Tim, at the fair, we were handing out "I (bike) Arlington" bumper-type stickers, but they were pretty flimsy and the one I had disintegrated after a couple of rides in the rain. Any chance of getting those same stickers in a reflective vinyl (or whatever material it is), which would complement the "be seen" message?

Perchance. I think the ones we gave out at the Fair were the initial stock that came in on the wrong paper. We have thicker paper now, but I hadn't thought about doing reflective vinyl for them. Sounds pricey, but maybe something to think about in the future.

Magnetic bumper stickers are better

Crabon don't take magnets, so Tim won't buy them.

You can probably fix that by gluing a big ole hunk of iron to the inside of the frame.

The babyseat is plastic--I'm not made of money!

(FYI--I like to refer to the other bikes as being made of "carpetfiber" rather than crabon")

Tubular tire glue can be used to attach those stickers to CF. Problem solved.

Reflective metal signs. Pop rivet them onto any frame material. Done. :cool:
