Reflecting with cable ties.

Here is the proposed solution to the the reflectors popping out. Taking my own advice I have used a pair of cable ties to hold them in at the end where there is only a small piece of plastic holding the reflectors in. I was able to use the spare reflector holder and reflectors that Deeside Cycles sent me after the early failure.

The only obvious problem with this solution is that I have now cut and drilled something made by Campagnolo. I will be seeking counselling.

The first test ride will be tomorrow, since over the last three commutes I've popped a reflector every day I should soon know if this is working. I can't see how it can not as the only way out now is if the reflectors break or the cable ties snap.

Now I wonder if Campagnolo would make the change themselves.
