Computer Zip Ties

Does anyone have a good online source for the computer zip ties used to tie wires and devices to forks, handlebars, etc.? They are longer and narrower than most that are available at Home Depot, etc.

Try Radio Shack. Lowes also has a better selection of zipties then Home Depot. I have some narrow ones that I got from there.

Mcmaster-carr is always a good place to look for such items.

These are about the best prices I have found for cable ties.

If you don't mind the natural (non uv resistant) you can buy in bulk very cheaply. Even Wal-Mart gets something like $2 for a package of 8 ties.
