At our shop, the Elyria Bicycle Education Center, we have the practice of making sure each bike sold has both front and rear reflectors. Our thinking is that this is appropriate since Ohio law requires both on bikes so we want our bikes to be legal when leaving the door. We do purchase new reflectors occasionally since salvaged bikes do not always have them or they are in unusable condition.​

Hi all,

I'm new to the Think Tank, though I've been around bike coops and advocacy for years.  I searched the archives but didn't find anything relevant to my question...

Do any of you have a policy about whether and which reflectors (or lights) must be installed on a bike that leaves your shop?  Has your coop had a discussion about it?  I'd like to hear from those groups who've considered the question, to provide input for our own discussion on it.

Thanks in advance!
