Fork Straps

Does anyone know about these guys? $25 and free shipping sounds good to me on a tight budget cuz I need a strap.

Nah, what zx racer did is smart. No bracket needed. Just strap em to the caliper. I mean, it is possible that there is going to be issues because it only goes to 1 caliper bolt instead of 2 like the brackets do, but its probably marginal if you do it right. Im sure you can attest to this zx right?
