Fixies™ are a simple fastening strap to attach just about anything to anything! We developed this strap for use in the Bike Pod Pro to attach the wheels to the inner part of the case as we found this fixing method to be gentler on your rims than zip-ties. We quickly realised that the Fixies™ could be used to fasten all manner of things to your bike; inner-tubes, pump, spares…the list is endless. The Fixies™ are reusable, easy to fasten and release and can be adjusted to any length, even extended!

Description Tech Spec Sizing
 

Fixies™ are a flexible tie wrap made from Hook-Loop dual, a new type of hook and loop tape where the hooks are mixed in with the loops so that it fastens to itself. This makes the tie wrap infinitely variable in length, “one size fits all”. To fasten, simply pass the Fixie™ around the items you want to fasten together, pass the end through the plastic slider, pull tight and fasten the Hook-Loop-Dual (HLD) back on itself. The plastic slider acts as a small pulley giving you a 2:1 mechanical advantage and therefore getting it as tight as you need.

If you need the fastener to be really short, like fastening on a frame bag, attach the fixie and get it tight and then cut off the excess. TIP: where possible have as much Hook-Loop-dual touching to give the maximum grip.

For longer straps; fasten 2 or more together by passing the end of Fixie™ 1 through the slider of Fixie™ 2 and then fasten the end back on itself, 50mm is the ideal amount to fold back but you may need more for heavy loads. By adding straps together you can make them as long as you need. The best part about it is they can then be reused for something else.

These packs of two are really handy to keep in your tool kit but if you need more industrial quantities we have them in packs of 10

In the reviews below please feel free to add any ideas of things you have fastened or ingenious ways of using them. If we include the ideas in our marketing we will send you a pack of 10 on the house!
