Miffed the zip tie idea won't work for rim brakes, I went looking for a better idea for rim brakes, as am not fancying the sheet screw method again, so a better idea, certainly good enough for what I have in mind on the bike I use for commuting ;
Now, I know one can get stainless steel pop rivets, a quick check on fleabay confirms as much, so I have a pair of Specialized Roll x folders that are getting a bit thin on tread, so these are my victims for the pop rivet idea. If it works and the tyres last, well, I can fold them up and keep them for next year once the slippy stuff has gone. ( No snow yet, but I am more concerned about ice, we have plenty of that)
The beauty is with pop rivets, is the head is almost flat, so no worries about thick tyre liners, although dutch tape will go in there just to stop any stray swarf causing a problem, although the tube slime should take care of that.
