We all know how healthy biking is, don’t we? It helps you lose the calories that you’ve gained unnecessarily. But this bike part aims to eliminate the limitation of traveling on a bike, that is, traveling alone.

Although there are exceptional bikes that allow one to have the convenience of traveling with a partner, the majority of us cannot afford them. And even bike riding in a group is also not something that’s possible very often. Hence, most of the time it’s you and your bike! This is exactly why a bike mounts a stereo speaker that can be customized to work wonders for you. You can download its 3D design file from MyMiniFactory.

2) An eccentric mudguard

Something that’s plain boring and duplicating in any bike, whether that bike is an expensive one or a cheap one, is its mudguard’s design. Same black colored semi-circular in shape, yeah? To make you get rid of that banality of mudguard design, a 3D designer has come up with an eccentric mudguard that can fit any bike’s wheel.

The 3D design file of this unique mudguard is available on Thingiverse. And its specialty is that it does not follow any of the traditional mudguard designs.

3) Wall Mounted Bike Stand

Designed to fit road bike and mountain bike tires of dimension 700 mm * 20 mm as well as 26-29 inches * 2.3 inches respectively, the wall-mounted bike stand 3D design available on Thingiverse mounts to the wall with 10 flat head screws. Though the designer has printed it using ABS, he suggests this design can also be comfortably printed using PETG 3D printing material. Overall, this is a simple, cheap, easy-to-install, and practical design that can be printed in any color that suits the decorum of the place it’s meant for!

4) Folding Bicycle carry handle

A frustrating thing while traveling on your bike is adjusting its chain. The failure of the chain to travel on the fixed route can be because of many reasons. It could be because your chain is more tight or loose than required, or it could be because there isn’t any object to guide it along the route. You can download a 3D design file of the 1×10 Chain Guide for your MTB available on Thingiverse to help yourself get a guide for your bike’s chain. Doing so would decrease the probability of your chain failure.

6) Specialized Bike Map Holder

If your belief in Google Maps is so much that it has convinced you to disbelieve the need for a physical map for your bike journey, we suggest you better debate this out with a professional biker! While traveling on a bike, you should stay prepared for the about-to-come-uncertainties. And this specialized bike map holder 3D design from MyMiniFactory bolsters your preparation. It’s an arm bracer, meant to be worn on your forearm, enabling you to have a glance on your route whenever you wish to, quickly!
