The studded winter tyres wouldn't fit inside the summer almost-180-degree mudguards so they had to come off. I put an old MTB crudcatcher on the front.


On the back is another MTB mudguard that wouldn't fit in the proper place, but instead is zip-tied on top of the rack (so the lever bit will still lever). And, taking inspiration from BikeHacks, there's a water bottle cut in half to fill in the gap by the seat post. It works very well.

On the corner of Tottenham Court Road and Oxford Street, with a gaffered cardboard mudguard.

Both similar Trek bikes, but there are some differences like the forks, tyres, brakes and mudguards.


Anyway, look at the front wheels for the answer to the question!

Little bike hack: one of those snap-on wrap-around arm-band reflector things around the wheel axle.


Keeps the hub clean and the bike visible.


You can also use a zip tie or a pipe cleaner. See

I drilled two holes in the deck so I can bolt-on a large plastic bin when required.

Gotta get to work somehow.

Once the piece was cut to size, I trimmed away the destroyed, frayed edge of the fender and installed the replacement piece with zip-ties. I LOVE zip-ties.

Quando tentei aperfeiçoar o protótipo, fiz caquinha e perdi o protótipo (na verdade porque notei um erro no corte inicial)

Resultado final. Meio torto, mas é um protótipo ainda

Da para regular a altura, aproximando mais do pneu

First draft of part of a set of 3D-printed adapters to attach a Topeak trunk bag to a generic seatpost clamp beam rack. Fits rack perfectly after thumbing a few burrs off the inner surface. I still need to re-measure/re-shape the guide rails that grip the bag - they're slightly too narrow.

Na segunda tentativa marquei as linhas de corte para facilitar

Como o paralama ficou muito mole, fiz um reforço estrutural com uma tira da própria garrafa

Partindo para a segunda tentativa ;) desistir jamais!

Isso ficaria escroto! Então desenvolvi o protótipo 01

Childs trailer with the top-section unbolted and all the fabric removed.

Turn right, go left.

This is not the donor bicycle . I repaired it and gave it away . This is an example .

Eis que essa garrafa outrora destinada ao lixo iria virar um paralama para a minha bike ;)
