C-clips Or Zip-ties

Postby Rik on Tue 21st Feb 12:26pm

I ran out of C-clips on my latest bike build, so I had to use zip-ties instead, and it felt dirty. Is it just me?

I wish I had the patent for zip ties even tenth of a cent royalty per unit would be a shitload of cash ,over the years there must have been gazillions sold :crazy:

From my motorcycling days I'm a firm believer in the power of zip ties ,it didnt seem to matter what fell off ,broke or exploded trusty old zip ties would get you and all the bits back home
