Haven't seen one in years, but we have so much glass on the roads around here, I've been thinking about bending one up out of wire--I'm always hearing "tickticktickPFFFF" when something gets stuck and hammered in before I can stop.

In a recent Rivendell Reader, Grant Petersen showed how to make a similar thing out of a loop of leather shoelace attached wherever you could make it work, even tied to the fork blades. It just rides on the tire and knocks stuff off.
