    No worries at all. I'm not looking to be in the DM cover business. I'm just helping out where there was a need. More options = better.

    Yeah I'm busy enough trying to keep my business running, but I've always wanted to make something for the bike world. Figured this would be a good starting point.

    Here's one I made tonight for another favorite Arizona bike shop of mine. Things are getting better just trying to optimize the painting process.

    Spoot, is that milled out of delrin (acetal)? I don't know if I'll have time to make one before I leave for the summer, but I might mill it on my CNC router out of either G10 or clear plexi then paint it.

    Maybe after this summer once I get a cooler, I'll mill one out of aluminum too.

    It's 1/4 " acrylic. Much cheaper than Delrin. I just ordered a bunch of different colors too.

    Now I need the les frame to turn up (ordered jan. 6th).
    As soon as it gets finished I'll post the pic
    Great to even send it to Belgium

    Glad that cover found its way to you in Belgium.

    Enjoy some fine beers while you wait for the new bike to show up. I've been through that waiting process - it's worth it.

    I've got a few more DM covers to go out. I'm busy out of town at a conference next few days, but I'll get 'em shipped early next week.

    I find myself in the same boat with a Mach6 frame with no cover...

    Vikb, Jon and HCC you guys rock!

    If you happen to have an extra on this run I would love to take the ducktape off my frame.

    Cheers and happy riding!

    Hi all, I am in the process of building my Les. What are you guys doing on the other end, where the front derailleur cable meets the frame from the shifter on the down tube? Is there a blank cap available, one without a hole in it that would lay flush with frame? It would make the frame look tidier if there was such a thing.

    I've gone through my PMs and updated my DM cover list. I think I have sent one to everyone that wanted one except for:

    Justin K
    Ryan S

    I'll get 2 more printed and mailed out next week.

    If I missed you drop me another PM. I may have over looked a message.

    I've left mine open. A clean plug/cover would be nice, but I haven't seen anything that looked like a good fit yet.

    BTW - no progress on DM covers this week. Lots of people away at work so didn't have time to make it happen. Will get back on it next week.

    Hey Vik,
    I just mailed out a handful of black nylon flat head screws to you for the DM covers you make. I got 25 of them for less than $10, so I figured I'd give you some to include when you send the covers out (if you want.) Not sure how long mail will take but hopefully they show up before you mail the next batch out.

    Wow! That's very nice of you. I like the team effort!

    I should get them soon enough and I will include 1 with each future DM cover.

    That little Direct mount space...cover it up?

    This is pretty neat idea...

    Yeah, a Pivot dealer should be able to get you one. You can see it here,

    Here's a few more I wrapped up this past week. Ignore the splotchy-ness. It's reflection from the trees.

    I've got 8 more 3D printed covers to send out with a bolt this round thanks to TurfnSurf

    I have to dig through my PMs are get the addresses I need. If you want one and haven't PM'd me I should have a couple extra I can send out.

    Hey Vik,

    Let me know if you run out of those flat head bolts, I've got way more of them than I'll ever use! At some point I may want to tool around with the DM cover you sent and see if I can incorporate some sort of rear pivot shield that will protect that "rock grinder" area in the pivot. If I destroy my cover in the process, I may be hitting you up for a new one

    Any chance I could flick you some coin to send one over to Australia?

    I'm happy to send you a cover to Oz. Just send me your address. No $$ needed.

    I had some folks confused which covers I am sending out. To be clear it's these basic 3D printed ones.

    So covers will be going out to:

    - Ryan S [sorry you had to wait so long! ]
    - Bruce W
    - Brett W

    Is anyone else waiting on one? I think I'm caught up now, but I may have missed a PM. My Inbox is pretty busy.
