    Unoccupied direct mount derailleur tab...

    Like many Mojo HD owners I run a 1X drivetrain, thus leaving the direct mount derailleur tab/boss unoccupied. Does anyone know of fun stuff one can put on it? Seems Yeti makes one Hop-ups - Parts which I might go with, but wondering what others have done...

    I'm going to put a tiny mirror on mine so I can see exactly how much fun I'm having. I may need a bigger mirror, 'cause I'm having a lot of fun...

    I will probably put a chainguide on there when they come out with XX1 specific ones. Black tape for now.

    Now that's a solid idea... I think I'll try that!

    I'm moving to 1x10 next weekend so I am also wondering are there any more options out there for a D-type derailleur mount cover besides the Yeti cover? The Yeti one is nice but (as much as I like Yeti) I don't want one on my Ibis!

    Maybe I will have to get creative with some alloy and a grinder...

    Haha. Well I've got a Vit-P HD... maybe I can find a pee-colored Sharpie! I will likely run the bolt from the derailleur at least to close off the hole and stop water ingress...

    How about some carbon 3M Di-NOC? Would be easy to cut the exact size out and apply.

    The nicest I've seen...

    ...is this little part that my pals at Cyclepath in Portland OR put on one of their recent builds. Super clean, and I like their branding on it too... Give them a call and see what part that is.

    I made some with a 3D printer.

    If you have a access to a 3D printer I can send you the file to make one.

    I cut and stuck a piece of black Velcro I had laying around. Not sure the total cost but it looks pimp!

    Unoccupied direct mount derailleur tab...-photo-1-.jpg

    I've been working on these for the last few weeks. Should have an etsy site running next week. If you guys wanted custom characters, logos, or text, let me know.

    The one in the picture is one of the first working prototypes.

    Hey, yeah I made a round of em for a few bike shop friends of mine.

    No etsy or site yet but hopefully soon. If you got an idea that you want, PM me and we can discuss it.

    Here is a nice array of them. And the splotchyness is reflection of trees in my yard.

    Can you send me the file, if you still have it?

    Thanks!

    My Stealth's house is routed through there. Works like a bomb. Just need to black out the rest of it.
