A bike computer sits on a wooden background. The back of the bike computer has a 3D printed attachment with two white translucent zip ties running through the back.

We enjoy hacks that continue to keep gadgets out of the trash heap, and [Brieuc du Maugouër] has us covered with this 3D printable alternative mount he built for his bicycle GPS.

One particular of the most annoying techniques a gadget can are unsuccessful is when a tiny, but critical part of the system fails. [du Maugouër] combined a 3D printed back and four M2x6mm screws to make a strong new mount to exchange the broken OEM mount on his handlebar-mounted GPS. Slots for zip tie mounting are included in case the replacement mount breaks prior to but another substitution can be printed. Apparently [du Maugouër] agrees with Main O’Brien that “in a crunch, I wouldn’t like to be caught without having a second backup.” [Youtube]

It is remarkable that we’re ultimately in a time when 3D printed alternative sections are dwelling up to their opportunity. This would be a whole lot less complicated if more brands posted 3D printed design information rather of finding them pulled from 3D file platforms, but makers will come across a way no matter of OEM approval.

We have coated a good deal of bicycle hacks more than the yrs including Do it yourself Bicycle Personal computers and GPS Trackers. Do you have a project that keeps one thing from turning out to be trash or may preserve the globe one more way? There’s still time to enter the Help you save the Planet Wildcard round of the Hackaday Prize (closes October 16th).
