You are absolutely correct sir, they are for pushbikes, but the fact remains that you can buy the correct ferrules and inners if you want to make your own, Mine seem to last forever and usually give plenty of warning before they go, but you could always carry an original spare, The last emergency repair to get me home I used a 5amp connecting strip, I was mixing the word solder with braze or weld...Sorry...John
