Hey, I found out a way to have cool looking tail lights without a power source! Well, actually, Matt figured this out years ago when he had one of the early Catrike 700s, and he told me about it. So, here’s the simple trick to utilize some unused real estate while making yourself more visible from behind. Just get some of that red reflective material with a removable backing, which allows you to stick it anywhere in many shapes, cut it to size (as shown below), and carefully adhere it so as not to get air bubbles. Simple, quick, and, once you see it in the right light, very effective for such a tiny area. Besides all the safety aspects, it just looks ultra cool, and makes everyone else think: “Now why didn’t I think of that?”. It also works on the backside of your neckrest.

Pannier Volume Conversion:One liter equals 61 cubic inches. Doing the math, if a pair of cargo bags is 60 liters, such as the Arkel RT-60 recumbent panniers, this converts to 3,660 cubic inches (60x61). Pannier manufacturers are known to express size both ways, which can be frustrating to a potential customer attempting to compare two different companies. Visualizing cubic inches may be challenging, thus converting to liters may help the mind's analytical eye.
