You can use regular zip ties. If you are worried about damaging the frame, throw a little neoprene between the frame and zip ties.Chopped and/or Yaro,
You mean like those 50-lb test black plastic ties that you can release and re-use? Did they abrade or chafe any paint right around the spot they hug on the frame? If they didn't, sounds like a great solution; better than messing with leather straps. Which always seem to confabulate me lol.
