One very good safety device, widely used all over the world except the U.S., is the flexible shaft reflector that extends out to the side of the bicycle. It has been proven very effective at encouraging vehicles to not come too close to the bicycle, but if a vehicle hits the shaft it will simply bend or break. I have added some better photos of the flash flag, including a close-up of the mounting clamp, and a scan of the instruction sheet (click here). Flash Flags can be mounted to the seat stay, or to a rear rack (with a rubber insert).
I no longer sell these flags. However you can buy the new model at http://nollij.blogspot.com/2007/02/flash-flags-now-you-see-them_1576.html.
