    The Friendly Cat's Paw...I want this!

    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    lol, nice.

    I have seen the orange paddles that provide a visual indication of the distance, but there's no consequence for hitting it. the driver probably wouldn't even know.

    I sort of forgot about Kale Co Auto… glad you posted this, as I NEED one of these things!!!… oh, and I think I also need some of those piston return springs too.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.

    Cool, is there a carbide tipped version?

    I like the "Not for use with pedestrians" disclaimer.

    lol, all good in theory, but what happens when it gets caught up in a trucks rigging or some smartass in a car whacks it with something, it looks pretty heavy duty, could you imaging riding with that thing hanging off your bike lol, thats some funny stuff, it looks like an idiot magnet to me and im not talking about the rider...
    Dont ever let the truth get in the way of a funny story....:cool:

    They've got something for the Weight Wienies as well:
    Cross Drilled Brake Lines - $72.95 : KaleCoAuto.com, Your home for the rare, unusual, and hard to find auto parts.
    (I'm sure there is an mtb version).

    Interesting find, I wonder if it'll actually scrape the paint off the car though :3

    If that is part of the bike then wouldn't the motorist have to stay 3 ft away from the end of it?

    The set of nails lowering kit, the blinker fluid, and the TNT high intensity flares are all a hoot, too!

    A roll on lacquer thinner applicator would prove they got too close. Leaves a paint free stripe. Harder on their paint but easier on pedestrians. Yes the windage and weight factors favor the plastic break-away markers that are available. In slower traffic a good kick, or a slap on the side windows is effective, I am told. Won't help SUV mirrors, though.

    Gets super dirty looks, but is also super effective. I've only had to do it once, but boy, it was the least I could do. Was trucking along around 30mph with a tailwind, solid bumper to bumper traffic next to me, and someone pulls out blind to try to turn into the other lane. I grabbed a bar-full of brakes, skidded 15 feet right up next to them.
