Plain Zippo lighters, and no I've never smoked.

NO, No, No
I have smoked and the zippo is just American tat. Back in the sixties the height of European cosmopolitanism was the IMCO 6700.
I had one and I lost it at EXACTLY the same time as I lost my virginity on a building site in Spain. Ironically I had to go to Spain to lose my cherry to a bird from Coventry!

Thanks for the info on the lighters. I stand corrected.

As for the other information it made me feel ill.

I have several.
I have one, albeit on a mountain bike and it's been bulletproof. I've never ventured away from shimano on proper bikes though.
