Any one used metal type ones? Cheers in advance Posted 1 month ago vincienupSubscriber Plastic is plenty strong enough. Metal is overkill. Personally I prefer clips, but that’s just because I sliced my hand on the end of a trimmed cabletie while washing the bike after a cold ride… Posted 1 month ago kevsMember Plastic is fine, just use nail clippers to trim them and it leaves nice rounded edges to stop you cutting yourself. Posted 1 month ago ajantomMember Plastic are fine, and are even reusable if you’re handy with a little screwdriver or Stanley knife blade 😉 Lidl currently have packs of 400 assorted sizes (including 160 of the really useful little ones) for £1.99.
