I’m only a leisure weekend cyclist but a hard core cycling colleague of mine mentioned she took bananas on her long rides but it was always a pain to carry them. Taped to the frame was a bugger to undo ‘on the go’ and stuffed into back pouches meant they often got squashed during the ride – apparently.
So, in my product designing spare time I came up with this crazy thing. Download the 3d file, print it out, fix to standard bike mounts and you're ready to go!
Water and Banana only a finger tip away!
Designed for small bananas only (need to keep ride weight down)
Print at 0.2 or finer with high infill - needs to be strong (still in beta testing)
No supports or raft needed (this will test your slicer and filament cooling fans)
DISCLAIMER: this is first prototype and hasn't been extensively road tested.
PLEASE DO NOT use in ride situations where an unrestrained bananas could cause injury!
110616 v2 added.
Redesigned to be stronger and smaller - will fit with 150x150x150 build area but with cages to hold larger bananas.
Thanks to Thingiverse member http://www.thingiverse.com/FourMat/about
for a suggestion to separate banana holders to allow bottle cage to flex for different sizes of water bottles
