Cycling Tips

Do you know what this is?

Yes it is a bicycle pant/ankle strap.  They help keep your pant leg from getting caught in the chain.  They are available a most bicycle stores from $3-$5.
This to be one of my favorite items because not only does it keep my pant leg away from the chain, I have found other uses for it.
As a third hand brake tool when aligning my brake pads with the rim. 

As a reflector on my seat post

As a spare inner tube strap.

As a parking brake when riding public transportation such as BART.  It keeps the bike from rolling around when on the BART train.
Do you have or know of any other uses for this?
