I now have quite a few different mounts for Specialized Pave and SL 'D' shaped seat post. Was able to get a cut off from someone that needed a mount. I also started designing some mounts that only require one bolt, behind the seat post for people needing a narrower type of mount to prevent shredding their cycling shorts.

That looks fantastic @WheresWaldo.

I'm curious whether you've considered designing with just a flat area where something like the K-Edge replacement Garmin inserts like this can be mounted?


The out-front mount that I'm using on my bike right now has the Garmin on top, and a GoPro-style three-bladed mount thingy built into the bottom. The Garmin attaches to one of these plastic inserts that is screwed onto the mount. I'm about to start designing a replacement for my out-front mount that will have it being an organic part of the 4-bolt front stem plate. In other words, it will be a one-piece stem plate with the mount for these two devices built into it. Once I have a good design I'm going to upload it to one of these sites that does laser-sintered 3d printing in titanium and get an estimate. It will be expensive, but if it's not outrageously expensive I'd like to get one printed up to use on my own bike, eliminating the kludge that's on there right now. Anyhow I was thinking about how to design the Garmin twist interface that I'd trust could be 3D printed well enough to hold the Garmin securely, while not being too brutal on the garmin itself if it's made from titanium. I decided to just have my design feature a little rim that extends up around the base of one of these K-Edge style garmin mount inserts by a mm or two instead. I think it'll be as secure as it needs to be and I won't have to worry as much at the precision required of the 3D printer or my design to do up the mounting flanges and whatnot.

The one thing that concerns me is that I'm no mechanical engineer, so I have no true concept of how thick the titanium stem plate would have to be safe, and that's a part that must survive much greater forces than any simple device mount would have to. An easy and probably reasonable enough solution would be to just copy the dimensions of one of the aluminum stem plates I have and just assume that if they're strong enough in aluminum, they'll certainly be strong enough in titanium. I'd like to take advantage of the reduction in mounting hardware and whatnot, though, and see if I could achieve a final mount that not only is much cleaner and simpler than what I have now, but also a little lighter too. Not to mention that the cost estimates of these 3D printing sites seem to be based on calculated volume of metal powder used and printing time, so the lighter the final part, the cheaper it would be to actually have one made. There's no way I'd use my design in a plastic 3D-printed implementation for a stem mounting plate.

Anyhow, I'm in awe of your designs. My Solidworks skills are rudimentary at best, so designing my stem/device mount will push my Solidworks comfort envelope, but I think it's a good project. I can 3D print prototypes of it just for dimensional fit evaluations and whatnot, but I'd only mount up and use one done in metal.

SethAZ I already have a bunch of inserts for the K-Edge mounts including a GoPro mount that will attach to the bottom.

Good luck with your project, and by the way, the sintered nylon is plenty strong for a mount, it doesn't need to be metal.

Some new things I was abl to design because of fellow cyclists, mounts for:
  1. Fondriest TF3 (may fit other Fondriest models if they use the same seat post)
  2. A Varia mount that snaps and zip ties to the bridge on a Berk saddle.
  3. More stuff.
Take a look at my Shapeways page for more, and leave me a message

Some more new stuff, was able to get a Tarmac SL7 seat post cut off, so have two versions of the Seat Post Varia Mount, https://www.shapeways.com/shops/revo...es?sort=newest

@WheresWaldo , great stuff. Is there any chance you could do a Garmin / Specialized Stem adaptor like this? while integrating a Garmin male plate at the bottom for lights and cameras. Thanks!

The stuff doesn't really dry, it is powder that is laser sintered (melted is easier to understand but not 100% accurate) into a shape. So it is always dry.

The first model is not my design, have you asked that particular designer if he/she could modify it for you? I would do it if that was my model or I had a similar model in my library but I currently do not. If Specialized uses the same model as a Barfly then I do have something, but that is not something I know.

Thanks, yes the first one is done by another designer, I've left message on Shapeway but no response so far.

Any current coupon codes for Shapeways?

I'm thinking about picking up the Garmin varia SWAT mount. I want to shift it's position to the saddle. That way I can mount my Cycliq fly6 CE to the seatpost.

Since I don't work for Shapeways, I simply don't know. I usually find out when I visit their site and see a banner.

Ah, gotcha. I skipped thru most of the pages in this thread and saw that you had mentioned a few coupon codes here and there. I was hoping there might be a current one. Thanks anyways. You're designs are quite nifty. I wish such a simple plastic mount didn't cost an arm and a leg.

I bought a mount for the Bontrager Ion 200 RT from Shapeways. Arrived in about three weeks, and works great.

Hi, the designer did get back to me. Unfortunately due to high demand, they can't take new custom design orders until end of the year. Which will be too late for me, too cold to ride ourside.

If the Specialized uses the same interface as the BarFly contact me on my Shapeways page and maybe I can work something out for you. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/revolutionaries

WheresWaldo I like your stuff!

Skimming through I see you have quite a few Cygolite accessories. Do you have a simple mount to attach a front Cygolite to a threaded boss on a front rack?

Right now I'm using a GoPro style adapter for the Cygolite, attaching that to another GoPro arm, and then running an undersized through bolt through the boss on my rack:


It's an M6 boss

Smitty2k1 are you wanting to install it on that boss that is on the back of the rack. Are you still interested in using the GoPro adapter to adjust the angle?

I think ideally I'd use the front, center mounted boss above the tire. I'd definitely want to keep the adjustability the GoPro mount offers as I have no idea what the "perfect" angle would be.

Is there enough room to mount the light between the bottom of the rack and the fender?

New Venge Mount

A very nice cyclist from Florida sent me the Di2 hatch cover for the new VENGE and I was able to model a Varia mount that replaces the hatch itself.

It is available here, https://shpws.me/Sm5Z

Finally got around to re-designing a part I first created about 5 years ago. Functionality is the same, just a lot cleaner and neater looking now that my CAD skills have improved.

Just awaiting the first print from Shapeways to confirm fit. If it's OK I'll add it to my shop alongside the original design, then phase out the original somehow.

AyUp lights to GoPro adaptor.
