Rear Triangle Cover

Jun '14


This started as a joke idea with some friends. No downhill aerodynamic testing or CFD has been done on my design.

Since I wasn't dedicated to the integrity of this solution, I made it out of scrap cardboard and waterproofed it with duct tape. Do we see a trend in using scraps? Surprisingly, these pieces of cardboard and duct tape zip-tied to the frame lasted the life of this bike!

Ask me about:

  • my bike stickers
  • Valhalla Jiu-Jitsu
  • how I got the right-side panel to fit over my chain
  • the wonders of zip-ties and duct tape
