Were they the closure thingies for bags of bread?
Were those things around in the 70s?
But in short no. Why? What does it do?
May have been a local thing, they just clipped on your spokes, in various colours. Mates used to have competitions how many they could collect.
My mates and I did back in the 70's , and the card in the spoke for vroomy noises
Yep that's the one
Not on my spokes but they were a bugger for brake efficiency. Especially when you nearly had a full outers worth right back up to the lever
I thought Spokey Dokeys were for your wheels and bread tags were for cable outers
Nar couldn't afford those
IIRC we used clothes pegs to hold bits of folded card to the stays, poking into the spokes. Sounded good...for about 5 minutes.
Bits of cut up ice cream container lids lasted longer..
Ice cream? You had a posher upbringing than i did!
When I were a lad in t'80s we used to tuck our Grifter's mudflaps up and under, they used to make a great sound until the soft rubber wore through
I never put anything on my spokes, or anything on the bike that wasn't of use. I'm the same now - can't stand tat on the bike!
70s I was too old for that........
