Re: drj0n bagworks

so these came through from the 3D printer - im calling them G-funk's - 31.8mm clamps that will take a 35-40mm M5 bolt and will therefore hold a bottle cage, Strap Deck or anything else to your handlebars (or anything else that can be shimmed to 31.8mm) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49680636131...

Re: designing a new part - let me hear your voice.

thanks all! yep - there are various versions of auxiliary bosses kicking around - this is mine...the idea is that if you only need one - say to add support for a many thing cage when you have a bottle set of bosses (ie 2 ->3) you add a couple of washers under the brazed on bolts and then you may onl...

designing a new part - let me hear your voice.

https://flic.kr/p/2iEbZSG Hope this isn't inappropriate use of the forum? So this part is coming soon - its a 3d printed housing for a brass M5 threaded insert, that can be stuck using double sided tape or stick on velcro AND 2 3mm zip ties to any tube or flat area on your bike. There are various op...

Re: drj0n bagworks

that would definitely give you clearance and adaptability....its funny - although there is very little curve to the Decks, the stability even with 6"/15cm roll bags is amazing. the reason I even began looking at it as a bar harness alternative was when I stopped using Jones bars and hence 4 point mo...

I have those pages bookmarked too! there is a diy decaleur group on Flickr that has some good ideas as well.... The Thomson is the nicest looking id say, more so if you can find a deal on it somewhere! the short answers are 'yes' the spacing for bottle cages bolts is 64mm and there is a few mm to pl...

Re: drj0n bagworks

the last job is to create the mechanism for holding the tool in the bar end. I use pvc tubing, that is compressed by 2 cones, that are held from rotating by friction with the pvc. the ends then are forced outwards and increase the diameter uniformly and that creates the hold. it works well and doesn...

Re: drj0n bagworks

once the initial parts we're made, I changed my mind about how the delrin section would hold the tool. initially, I was going to mill out a cavity for it, but felt that wasn't clean enough, so split the piece and hollowed out the head to make a simple press on 'top' https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Re: drj0n bagworks

yeah, if you poke around on German eBay there are often cube, syntace - designed stems for sale. I reckon it would be surprising if the c-c was different, but then again, it remains a possibility....they are often cheaper than syntace and you can always remove decals w a bit of rubbing acetone... fo...

Re: drj0n bagworks

ok, quick update - the c-c for each side of all syntace stems I have is 40.15mm. if it helps that is more than for a Thomson stem. so - the Twinfix stems face plates may work with other stems, but you would have to measure up. FWIW, the face plates seem backward compatible with older style stems, an...

Re: drj0n bagworks

the faceplates for syntace stems come in 2 flavours - M5 bolt and M6 bolt. they are ~40mm c-c - i'll measure to the .00 mm this week as several folk are interested. also, they are l and r so width doesnt mater, the clamp for syntace stems is a 200 degree to main recepticle design. i cant advocate th...

Re: Glasgow bikepacking shops?

is the velcro through a daisy chain of webbing or sewn in? the best way usually is to get a bit of double sided velcro (really useful stuff) make a small loop of 2cm wide stuff and velcro that into the original strap for the steerer. John climber put a great video up that shows it in motion... https...
