So, pretty much just like these straps, but with the chain separate (and I'm guessing just 1"ers for the bikes)? Wish I would have thought of that, it would have saved some cashola





The real bitch is I spent all that money to get the nice straps and they haven't even been out of the storage bag since they arrived. Guess I need to start buying more projects

Those Mac straps are nice, however the strap will wear out far sooner than the chain then your left looking for new straps when he chain is fine.
