Silicone Tidds

We love bikes, although ultimately it doesn’t really matter, we want our bikes to be right and those little details are what makes a bike right. Some little details can be hugely expensive but Tidds are a cheap detail. What are they? Tidds are for unused bottle cage bolts, you just put a bit of lube on and twist and push in. Tidds weigh 90% less than the unused steel bolts they replace & look super clean. Each lightweight Tidd comes in at 0.25g (0.5g per pair). So far Tidds come in three colours, Black, White and Pink. I think they’re neat. Sure bolts don’t weigh much but, you know it’s all about details. Also good for plugging pannier bosses, and will help to stop the corroding weather getting in there. They cost £3.99 a pack (of two) and you can get them at www.siliconetidds.com.

    They look nice, but 4.5g is pointless to even mention.
