Title of the device or system
Handlebar grip for a bicycle developed by Abhijeet Divekar
This part was built to meet the needs of one of our professors; Dr. Greshenson, that heads a bike Enterprise program at Michigan Tech.
Bill of Materials
- No additional materials needed. Open source softwares, computer and RepRap is all you need.
Tools needed for fabrication of the OSAT
Skills and Knowledge Necessary to Make the OSAT
- No special skill(s) needed.
Technical Specifications and Assembly Instructions
No special instructions needed. Pretty straight-forward.
Common Problems and Solutions
- Include common mistakes/problems to avoid in building your OSAT and how to overcome them
- If your solution is not a low cost one then it is not really appropriate.
Typical handlebar grip costs anywhere between $3 - $8 Amazon. The 3D printed equivalent costs about 60 cents for a pair. So the cost basically reduced about 10 times the commercial equivalent.
- Dr. Greshenson's Lab for measurements.
