hub cleaner thinga-magig (where do you get these)

I was just wondering if anyone has found a place online that sells those puffy hub cleaners that sit on your hub and clean it while your riding. I have one that my friend gave me, but he had gotten it from someone on a trip in japan. A while back i remember stumbling on a place that sells these but i cant seem to find it again. ok heres the pic

Gee Whiz, already!! Make one yourself out of a long bristle brush or make the old
fashioned leather strip and bolt cleaner. Both are dirt simple to make and they work!!

That looks like the business end of a toilet brush.

I can't see how it would do anything being there.

yea true, i might end up doing that. But the only reason i want them is for style points and ive seen them in other color combinations before.

Man, the 70's reflector hanging there has reincarnated into a toilet brush.

So it will clean and clean and clean and clean and clean as you peddle. It will clean the anodization off and then clean the aluminum to a polish. Not evenly mind you.
