Very Nice! That looks like an awesome bike to ride - the variator probably sings the death of all hills, no?

Sheldon Brown, who recently passed away, has an excellent article on why reflectors are just a means that manufacturers use to circumvent certain safety restrictions.

"Why Reflectors Don't Work":http://www.sheldonbrown.com/reflectors.html

On your bike (like on some of mine) the lack of turn signals makes you invisible from the side. I am assuming that is why you have giant, awesome reflectors on there.

I just wanted to let you know that you _can_ take those off if you don't like them; they don't have a significant safety benefit.

Then, you could sew them onto a bag, or a pair of pants or something because they're giant round bright awesome.
