Tire Saver for Steadyrack Bike Rackby
Model originally uploaded to Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5442293.
I purchased four Steadyrack wall mounting bike racks that have been a godsend. However, there is one design flaw, found this Spring when I came to realize I hadn't thought to check front tire pressure throughout the winter. The entire weight of the hung bike rests on the thin edge of a plastic-coated sheet metal hoop. When tire pressure is below optimal the hoop deforms the tire, potentially causing permanent damage to the thread and casing. This slide in place cradle gives the tire ever increasing contact with the tire as pressure drops, protecting the tread and carcass from damage, and this design may work with other manufacturer's wall racks.
Resolution: 0.2+ mm Walls: 3 Infill: 65%, Gyroid Support: Yes Raft: No Brim: Yes Filament: I printed mine in PETG. ASA, ABS, Nylon. PLA/PLA+ wouldn't be a good choice if the racks are kept in an environment subject to freezing cold and hot temps.
