Sold individually to allow mixing or matching of colors–one is enough to do both sides of one wheel. For full stripes on two wheels, two are needed.
Riding your bicycle is great, but even with a front and rear light, riding at night can be dangerous due to poor side visibility.Fiks:Reflective Wheel Stripes aim to increase side visibility for bicycles to keep their riders safe. They are designed specifically to fit modern bicycle wheels and install easily by being applied to the surface of the rim between the braking surface and the spokes, converting them into full reflectors, and staying out of the way of the brakes.
Choosing the width for your Reflective Rim Stripes comes down to the type of rims on your bike. The rim is the metal ring in which the tire fits to. Several sizes are available to fit almost every modern wheel on the market.
7mm - Our most common size. These are designed to fit on the section of the rim between the braking surface and the spokes/
10mm - Specially designed for bicycles with disk brakes, drum brakes, roller brakes, a coaster brakes, or brakeless track bikes. These are designed to be installed on the outermost section of the rim next to the tire (where the braking surface would normally be).
If your bike is equipped with rim brakes and the rims do not have at least 6mm or 1/4 in. of space between the braking surface and the spokes, Fiks:Reflective Rim Stripes cannot be used–never apply Fiks:Reflective Rim Stripes to the braking surface of a wheel.
The most common bicycle wheel sizes in the US are 26in, 29in, and
700c. 26″ wheels are very popular for mountain bikes and hybrid bikes,
but you will find more and more 29″ wheels on newer mountain bikes. 700c
is the universal standard for road bikes, but is also a common size for
hybrids. In much of Europe what we call a 29″ or a 700c is called a 28″ wheel.
Note: The referenced sizes of bicycle wheels are designations and not the actual diameters.
If you are unsure of the exact size of the wheels on your bicycle, the tire is the best place to look for clarification.
The ISO (International Organization for Standardization) measurements are found marked on the tire in parenthesis. The first number is the tire width and the second number is the (BSD) bead seat diameter. If this number is 559, the wheel is a common 26″ mountain bike wheel. If it is 622, it is a 29″ mountain bike wheel, 700c road wheel, or a European 28″ wheel.
The 700c wheels on your road bike are actually the exact same size (diameter) as the wheels on your 29′er mountain bike–both have and ISO bead seat diameter of 622mm. The only difference is the rim width (which has no effect on Reflective Rim Stripe sizing).
