Top 10 Cables Tie Hacks and Bodges | Mountain Bike Maintenance

Picture this: You’re out in the woods with just your bike and a small riding pack when disaster strikes. Miles away from home you begin the long walk when you remember…you’ve got cable ties in your pack! Cable ties can fix anything! It’s lucky you watched that GMBN video! 😉

Disclaimer: These hacks are not intended for a permanent fix. They are intended to help you ride home on damaged or broken parts. Any such parts should be replaced when possible, not left bodged together with cable ties!

Cable ties are a great resource to re-attach items that have fallen off your bike, hold things in place, re-join two items that were once one and generally bodge yourself a way home! On top of that they’re lightweight and a small, simple thing to carry or stash around your bike for emergencies!
