How can replicate the functionality of this bike rack cradle?
I have a bike rack with rubber cradles that have dried out. I'm annoyed because the cradles are no longer available and every rack manufacturer seems to make cradles to fit a different bar diameter. In my case it's 1.125". Current racks on the market are either 1" or 1.25". Any ideas on how to replicate the functionality of this cradle? I need to make 8 of them. It needs to be soft enough not to scratch the paint finish on a bicycle.
