Any cycling readers got 3d printers? Then here’s a neat idea for you.bottle-and-banana-cage2

Franc Falco says that he is just a weekend leisure cyclist but a bit of a designer, so when a hard core cycling colleague mentioned to him that she took bananas with her on long rides but it was always a pain to carry them: if they were taped to the frame, undoing them while riding was not always easy; and stuffing them into a jersey pocket often squashed them.

Franc’s solution is a combined bottle cage and banana cage!

If you have a 3d printer and suffer from the same squashed banana problem, Franc’s design is available free of charge on
