SRAM Rival Crank Aero Cover

After reading about some aero gains from Crank covers, I decided to try and 3D print one to fit on my SRAM Rival crankset on my TT bike. The curves and irregular shape/profile of the crank made it difficult to model, so I printed a flat surface, and used heat to mold it to match the profile. It is held on via zip ties.

3D Printing Project – *Another* Bike Storage Box

My 3D design skills and understanding of modeling around a physical object have come a long way since my first bike storage box, this one fits my 2022 Canyon Speedmax CF (Medium). The reason for designing and printing these is that while the bike has built in storage, it’s seldomly enough to be self sufficient during long rides. For full distance Ironman events, I take the following: (After mishaps, trial and error) 2 x Tubolito spare tubes, 2 x CO2 Cartridges, 1 x Dart puncture tool, 1 x Mini Pump, a Multi Tool and a Chain link.
