Reflective bike frame set: Cathedral


In 10 steps to a unique piece

With this modular sticker kit for the entire bike frame, you can transform your bike into a reflective one-off in 10 steps! Glue your own design, no matter what frame geometry your bike has, whether fixie or e-bike.

This box not only contains a technically sophisticated product, but also our accumulated wealth of experience in user-friendly product design in the form of detailed step-by-step instructions. This allows you to achieve an absolutely convincing result in a very simple way. In addition, ours will help you Video-Tutorials, which you should definitely check out before you start stitching. All you need is a pair of scissors and basic trust in your intuition.

Premium Upgrade & Additional Stripes

For particularly precise work and better access to hard-to-reach places on the frame, we recommend our premium upgrade, which includes professional tools (scalpel & squeegee) and a color-coordinated set Reflective SPOKES contains.

For example, if you own an e-bike, own a frame with a thick tube diameter, or just want to add more stickers, you can have us enclose an additional strip (similar to module A).

contents

A box consists of several sticker sheets, which together cover a complete bicycle frame. Three wider strips (A, B, C) for the main tubes, and three pairs of strips for the fork, chainstays and rear stays (D, E, F) and one piece for the head tube (G). In addition, there are smaller patches for individual use.

Material

The stickers consist of a reflective film from the traffic safety sector, which is used for warning markings, traffic signs and information signs outdoors. The reflective foil meets the requirements of EN12899-1 and is characterized by its durability and absolute resistance to weathering, corrosion and solvents. Temperatures from -50° to +80° Celsius do not affect the material.

The retro reflection is created by tiny glass spheres that are attached to a transparent plastic layer and reflect the light back to the source. The surface is made of alkyd resin, the adhesive is made of solvent polyacrylate. The full reflection properties are guaranteed for at least 7 years.

The printed colors are UV-resistant and scratch-resistant, i.e. no fading due to sunlight or color loss due to weather or everyday stress.

The thickness of the stickers is around 0.1mm.

Application

Area of application for the stickers are smooth solid surfaces.
Textiles or hard foam (Urban Arrow) are not suitable as a substrate.
With the help of a transparent application film, the stickers can be detached from the carrier material and stuck either together or individually as you wish.
The substrate must be dry and free of grease and dirt particles.
The outside temperature when gluing must not fall below 10° Celsius and ideally corresponds to room temperature.
After 1-2 days, the adhesive connects to the substrate until maximum adhesion is reached. Removing the stickers turns out to be a clever fiddling around. When removing, mechanical action helps better than chemicals.

Pflege

After the stickers have been properly applied, you can sit back and relax. Bad weather doesn't bother them. If it gets dirty, you can wipe the film off with water or commercially available cleaners without hesitation.

Produktion

The production site for the raw material is in Brandenburg, further processing takes place in Berlin, including with the help of workshops for people with disabilities, and we take care of the shipping ourselves from our headquarters in Prenzlauer Berg. We can thus map our value chain completely regionally. It is within a 35km radius of our store.

Long awaited and yet happy

First of all a big disappointment - after two weeks of waiting still no delivery and no information about the shipment status apart from the unfortunate message in the DHL portal that the shipment is still only announced. It was announced on the day I ordered it, but nothing more happened. After an email to the team saying that I wanted to withdraw from the purchase, I received an email from Ebi from the Reflecitve team: the frame set I originally ordered was not available, the team was on vacation, so everything was delayed. If I would take something else and accept a little extra. In the end, we not only agreed on a more expensive set for the same price, but also on the upgrade with gluing aid and set expansion. Two thumbs up, very customer focused and accommodating. The set was with me five days later, well packed in a box. Inside the round frameset packaging and a handwritten card with another apology for the delay.

Gluing is quite a challenge on an old and not particularly cleanly painted frame with many screw points, but in the end I am very satisfied with the result. The other set components were enough for a helmet, drinking bottle, bike backpack and other parts on the frame.

Thanks for your honest feedback Benjamin. Things don't always go smoothly, but it's nice to see that there's no bad blood and that we were still able to make you happy :)
Anyway, your result looks really good. Good decision to switch to the Rainbow variant.

Top!

I adapted the set to my E-Muli cargo bike. This was of course a bit more complex due to the special shape of the frame, but overall it worked out great. In the light, the black set looks very classy on the black frame and in the dark it really shines like a case :) I also attached spoke stickers in rainbow and fire.
Communication with Reflective Berlin was fast and uncomplicated and my special requests were fulfilled immediately.
