    Nah he just needs a Chernobyl Reactor Cycling Team jersey.
    The ridiculousness of cycling clothes increase exponentially in relation to the distance from your bicycle.

    The photo is taken by a camera with some IR ability (hence the green background) so it is not as bright as shown. The 3 Vt generator doen't make sense. Bike generators are nominally 6 or 12 volt, though will be 3 v if slow enough. The old halogen bulbs are what was in old projectors and overheads, but I would guess an LED lamp and fiber optics of some sort. I think my headlights and tail lights show up a lot farther. I am waiting for better weather to test the Glo rimskin tape. This is likely more visible with the legs like that but cranking, they will hide the frame a portion of the time. I would also be concerned about loss of night vision.
