How to make a hard saddle bag from recycled plastic jars. Full article at


Gerry :)

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

Mudguard not giving enough splash coverage? Simply cut open an (organic) beer can and gaffer tape it on!

Gotta get to work somehow.

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

The screw/bolt pass through the attaching "arm" and a washer before entering the plastic film canister. The canister was pierced first with a pen knife.

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

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.

Da para regular a altura, aproximando mais do pneu

Made from some bits and bobs that were lying around and an old film canister. There's a metal seatpost shim inside the canister for extra strength. The canister lid gives enough of a ridge to prevent the Dinotte's O ring from slipping off.

Na segunda tentativa marquei as linhas de corte para facilitar

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.

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

Plastic display card for a WTB saddle. I cut two pieces and doubled them up inside the fender end for extra support.

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

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