Where could I get some zip-ties?

The damned rubber seal things on my fork keep coming loose and slide up and down the stanchions (I think that's right, anyway) and the LBS doesn't seem to want to do anything ("Yeah, sure, we'll lube it up, it'll be OK then." Next day they came loose again.) and I was thinking of getting some zip-ties and tieing the rubber things down. Only problem is, I have no idea where I could buy/find () some?

Thanks

Local hardware store. But wouldn't it be much more stylin' to buy some fork boots? Lizard skins, speed stuff, everyone has them these days.

Try like a autoparts store, or a hardware store. I got a big tube of zips (like 500 count) in different colors and sizes for about $5US.

Oh wait you're in Spain where there are no Home Depots Targets, and Walmarts. So a trip over for a couple zip ties wouldn't work so well eh?

I'd try the local hardware store. As for the rest of you guys we do have members that don't live in the US / Canada. Sheesh

Hehe, nah, I doubt it's worth taking a trip to Walmart from here for some zipties.
