Yeah, if I do one in anything besides PETG or PLA, I'm gonna let ShapeWays do it for me.

I figured the plastic was strong enough or it wasn't and the easy way to know was to just try it. In the end, I'd say they're excellent emergency spares and somewhat substandard permanent replacements.

Or good band-aids for people who don't know the difference between how derailleurs mount.

Cyber Monday

Shapeways is doing a sale for Cyber Monday. Works on anyone's stuff, not just the stuff I design.

I thought I'd follow up after having a couple of weeks with my new light mount.



The first observation is that the Cygolite side is too high, should have been offset 23 mm or more. As it is it's too high to put a flat load on the top of the rack.



Second observation is that the Cycliq mount is loose. My light mounts tightly in a Cycliq mount, but in the 3d printed one it has room to rotate (on the axis it's twisted in) as well as wiggle vertically and horizontally. I do have some thoughts on what's going on here.

Third observation is that having mounting holes that use standard socket head cap screws is awesome. I've used all sorts of mounts and nothing beats being able to tighten them with a normal hex key. For example, the Cygolite mount uses hex head bolts in hex-shaped recesses so you have to awkwardly deal with tightening a nut on the back. The Cycliq mount uses flat head machine screws that are an odd size and end up rusting.

So some good and some not so good, but fun to try regardless.

jdoff Thanks for the feedback. Guess we should have rechecked the Cygolyte dimensions before finalizing, this is always an issue when we arre working through email and I don't have a device in front of me to visualize the end result.

Thanks for the feedback on the Cycliq mount, I will work on revising my mount to make it a tighter fit.

Interesting bit of info sent to one of my Pinarello mount users. Apparently every bike except for the Dogma F (no number) uses the same seat post profile. That means the F8-F12 mount also fits the Gan, Grevil, K series, Prince bicycles too.

Question for those that can assist.

I would like to have some stuff 3d printed, but I'd prefer to send a file to the other party that does the printing, however, I don't have a means to obtain the parts specs so I want to capture the parts dimensions prior to engaging the other party so all they have to do is download the file and print.
Which 3d imaging setup would I need in order to do so?

Troul you even have me stumped, I don't do any 3D scanning but I am sure there are companies willing to scan a part and turn it into a 3D model. Problem is you actually have to have the part first so they can scan it. If I am understanding your question properly.

I'd like to have the ability to 3d image it myself. It'd take the guesswork out for the person receiving my 3d image file and put any error on me, which seems to be the hindrance in having some 3d print a part for a customer.
it'd also greatly reduce the lead time too.

Whereswaldo, do you have a 2 part system that is a flat quick mount for mounting on a water bottle cage bracket?

Nothing like that, and probably not something I would do myself.

Most people should know I am just a one man team, I do this in my spare time so stuff either has to be something I want for myself or something I find interesting. I am not some huge Asian company spitting out parts by the millions or any other type of worldwide corporation with a staff of people doing design work, it's just me.

Similar with my hobbies. IF & when I have spare time, I might dabble in lending myself to others at my decision. Yet, after many years of making it known, I am treated like a facility with a line of machinery that is expected to operate off of thin air.

I am very surprised I have to post a message like this.

Background
Many people know that cycling is a passion of mine, discovering it in my teens in Oregon. I rode all over the state, but then left it for seventeen years, because you know, life happens. You can look through my past history of posts on this community forum and see that I have had struggles with weight and at one point I was 352 pounds. I had to do something! With the help of my physician and a Gastroenterologist I started to lose the weight. I had gastric bypass surgery and with a regime that included a return to cycling I lost most of the weight. I found myself just under 200 pounds. Still heavy but manageable. I rode and finished the Assault on Mount Mitchell in the Blue Ridge Mountains and I was able to dedicate myself to riding. I was riding about 6000 - 8000 miles per year. But the damage I had done from being obese for so many years did not rear it's ugly head until a couple of years later.

Riding with my daughter, on our tandem, with a group of friends in a regular ride, I had a few chest pains. They went away as soon as we pulled over to the side of the road. I chalked it up to being cold, around 38įF and the beginning of a new season. We finished the ride without further incident. The next weekend on the same group ride, in nearly the same spot, with cold weather, the pains returned. Again, we stop and they went away. We continued the ride without any more pain. The third weekend we are out on the same ride, but this time it was in the 50's. About he same location the pains returned, something was wrong. I went home and called the cardiologist who saw me that very same day. After an initial exam I was preparing to do a cardiac stress test and just about to step on the treadmill when a nurse rushes in and tells me to come with her to see the doctor immediately. When I walk into the doctors private office the nurse closes the door and the doctor's first words, I will never forget this, "Why aren't you dead!". Shocked, I ask why, what does he mean? He goes on to explain that I had three coronary incidents and that I had 98% & 95% blockages on the left and right sides. He then goes on to tell me that he has set up an appointment at the hospital and will meet me there in an hour.

I call my wife, who panics at the news, but she pulls it together and takes me to the hospital. Three hours later I have two stents and all the normal blood flow has returned. On the following checkup, when I asked the doctor why he said what he said, he told me that they typically call the area of my heart that was damaged by the incidents 'the Widow Maker' and it typically is results in death, But I didn't, so I asked why he thought I survived. Basically he told me that all the cycling I had done in the previous two years had basically stress tested my heart over and over again, and that heart, the miraculous organ that it is, found new ways to feed itself. He explained that the riding saved my life.

Why I am telling you all this now
I had a recent encounter with someone that wanted a new item modeled. As per our exchange of messages I tell him how I work and that I do not charge for my design time in exchange I keep the digital files and any addition information or parts that I need to complete the task. I use Shapeways, not because of some deal I have with them, but because they have an easy to use storefront. They are also the people with current 3D print technology. I have tried other services but for the most part I have been satisfied with the service I get from them.

Back to this cyclist, he did provide a digital file of the post profile, with that I said I would come up with something. When giving me the file he demanded that the cost only be a certain amount and he would pay no more. When I told him that I do not dictate the pricing his response was essentially to 'Forget it and delete the file!' My response was short and said I do this for the love of cycling and I hoped that translating his message from his native language was the reason his message was so abrupt. I thought that was going to be it, but his response came. He basically called me a ********ter and that I can do whatever I wanted with the file but he knew how much effort I would have to put into the design and I was a liar. I withdrew from the conversation thread without a reply.

Wrapping this up
I have been doing this for seven years now. I will continue to do this, I am not going to let some faceless / nameless ******* on the internet deter me from doing something I love. I do hope that what I have chosen as a hobby helps a lot of other cyclists, just as much as cycling has helped me. I am just one person, but I do the best I can with what little tools I have at my disposal. In those seven years I have only come across three people that have gotten under my skin, early on a person who supplied an aero post profile wanted me to buy the product for him and told me it was his idea so he owned my design, the NA Felt Marketing Director who told me that not a single FELT owner wanted anything I was offering, and now this guy. I shook off those other two and I will shake this off too.

Thank you for this great community and for taking a few minutes to read this message.

I know I've ping you for a potential part in the past. Hopefully I did not come off as one of those other folks you've described.

Keep up the continued healthy riding!

I have never seen a rack that has no mounting holes in the rear, not even for a reflector! It might take a bit of time before I can sit down and thing about how I would solve for this.

yeah, itís bizarre. All of the other racktime racks on their website seem to have them! This is the racktime stock rack that comes with the Specialized Vado 5.0 I appreciate any input you may have, thank you!

Remove that currently installed allen head fastner, find a stem cap mount that supports the varia & affix the mount to the rack bracket going thru the plastic guard using an acceptable length fastener & locking nut.
