From a previous thread it has become apparent that there is a serious zip tie shortage in Canada. One of the members of this forum is in dire need of zip ties and is unable to complete the installation of his fender eliminator. I have a PayPal account and am willing to organize a emergency zip tie shipment for Jay. If I can't get his address I will either bring them to the Niagara trip and personally deliver them or find someone else who is going that can deliver them. If anyone is interested please PM me with the title "Binary Jay Emergency Zip Tie Fund" and I will answer any questions and provide you with payment information. Remember, even a small donation can provide Jay with desperately needed zip ties. Lets help a fellow member through this difficult time. We're coming to save you Jay. Just hold on a little longer Buddy.

He's just plain missing. I think the embarrassment of not having zip ties has caused him to hang his head in shame. It's O.K. Pal. We're all friends here.

Like he's gonna want to see all you clowns after this. Is that anyway to treat a friend? And those had better be CHROME ties you're getting for him.

I'm enjoying the overwhelming support, I am touched. My bike is still missing the zip tie, that piece of plastic is looking horrible... I don't even want to ride any more.

If you can find a gold zip tie like fastener I will be seriously impressed, not to mention I will feel very bling on the roads, certainly the zip tie will be the focal point of the entire machine.

Gentlemen, and Ladies, I fear your efforts here will be too slow to save our friend in dire need, Jay. I know where he lives and I am only an hour or so away. I am currently gathering a team of zip tie experts and we will leave at dawn to try and assist our fallen comrade. I have collected red, green, yellow, blue and black zip ties but the exquisite gold zip tie still eludes us. Hopefully, we can provide a temporary remedy to this horrendous situation with one of the selection we currently possess. Wish us luck.

By sheer luck, todays loaf of bread ( i can only afford one on fridays) came with a gold wire and plastic twist tie. I know this is a poor replacement for a REAL zip tie but i once travelled 287.89 kms using three of them as a chain link replacement.

I will leave no stone unturned until I find Jay a gold zip tie. I don't care if I have to travel to the ends of the earth. I promise you Jay, I will get that elusive gold zip tie. Even if I have to die trying.
