Cold Weather Bike Wind Deflector
So I've taken an indirect pledge not to commute to school VIA car - by not buying a parking decal... Since school started, I've commuted, by bike, nearly 400 miles. But now it's starting to get cooler.
I really don't like riding in cold weather. I typically wake up cold, get ready (still feeling cold) and getting on a bike when it's cold out is pretty uncomfortable....
So, for my next ugly bike abomination accessory.... My first wind deflector fairing prototype. I made a model in SketchUp (this was my "learn to use SketchUp" project), then from that make a development drawing (3D shape to 2D cutout) and cut that out of some scrap cardboard (I've got quite a bit that I rescued).
Yes, there are flaws in this design - it's my first attempt :p As of now, I need to figure out how to mount this thing. I currently have some surplus 1/4" threaded rod at my disposal, I'm going to grab some and see where it takes me :p
