Show me the jury rigged shit you've cobbled together yourself instead of buying from a store.

5gal bucket panniers, homemade bags, diy anti-theft solutions, etc.

p.s., picrel was absolute useless 3d printing and raspberry pi bullshit

I made some shitty brackets for a rear rack once just by bending some galvanized sheet metal and drilling a hole for a bolt.

The bike didn't have a suitable braze on on the frame, and the brackets for sale were more than I could justify, so fifteen minutes and some sheet metal it was.
>>
I don't have a metal shop unfortunately but I made a ton of 3D printed things for bikes.
My best design so far is a flexible bar mount smartphone holder, pic rel.

Also made
Bracket for bell
Decorative bash guard
Valve caps
Bottle holder brackets
Excentric spacer to correct FD offset
Mount for head light, which I ripped off a trashed bike in the street

Currently working on a smiley faced rear light

Gonna make one of these. Disappointed that they don't have all the plans online or even for sale. They say they have some secret sauce they can only tell you about at their workshops in Berlin. Bro I'm an American.

are there any resources for making your own cargo bike?

I'm planning to make a recumbent trike based on the XYZ system, with a wide platform similar to their Parkcycle. I'm still kicking around ideas for the fairing, as I want it to pop up into a fairly large camper.

probably in a thread where the solution to a seized cassette was to wedge the wheel against a wall.
>>
>>1983022

replaced the stock base that weighed nothing and was only big enough to be a base in name only with a 5 pound weight sandwiched onto a bigger piece of wood. it will never fall over again.
added a big hook to easily drape the hose instead of always targeting the tiny little snap-on cleat thing and added a handle so I can grab it and carry it from the top instead of awkwardly from the side. painted it to match my decor since it stays out in the open and got rid of the annoying "extreme" graphics

inquiry rejected.
