The Cateye Velo 5 and 8 are nice cheap and small bicycle computers that have a big button sticking out the front. If you hold down the button for a few seconds it resets most of the data on the unit.

It's far too easy for stuff to accidently press the button and erase your ride data when the computer is in a bag or pocket. That's why I made this little laser cut glue-on part on that makes it harder for random objects to press the button. It doesn't get in the way when the computer is on the bike.

DXF now uploaded, as promised.


The front of the velo 8 is curved, so I recommend cutting this out of 2mm acrylic, which has the right amount of flexibility for a good fit. 3mm may also work but it's harder to get the curve.

After you've cut it out, put some superglue on the back, line it up with the button and screen and push the middle until the glue dries. Most excess glue should disperse out of the holes. It's fiddly so try not to glue your fingers together!
