3D Printed Cyclone 3000 Motor Spacer

Post by fordtheriver » Jul 28 2019 3:58pm

After installing the Cyclone 3000 mid drive kit, I noticed a somewhat blunt feature on the motor was slightly denting my bike's down tube. To prevent any further denting, I designed and 3D printed a spacer that sits in between the motor and the frame. This part redistributes a point load coming from a sharp feature on the motor to a larger surface area on the down tube, reducing the stress induced on the bike frame. So far its worked well so I figure I would share it with you all! Curious to hear your thoughts/ideas for improvement!


Here's a link to my repo where the design files are stored:

Here's a link to a youtube video showing the installed spacer. It is the small black object resting in between the motor and the bike frame, right beneath the three zip ties

Nice solution. I cut the wrist off a tig glove and used that.
