Polishing up your newly acquired ALAN bicycle, rebuilding the bike with new cables and then it happens, one of the guides snaps or you notice that the derailleur cable stopper has a small crack. You tell yourself it’s no big deal and you will find a replacement.
But after 7 years the search still continues…
To be honest I had planned to make these 5 or 6 years ago already but never really got to it. the CAD model is finished, the blueprint is ready now there is the question of manufacturing cost. Sintering (3D metal printing) will set us back 25 euros a piece. Unfortunately that isn’t realistic, so we are looking for a company that will make us these tiny bits as we don’t have the tooling required to CNC these in-house.
Once they are in production we will update this blog post and add them to the webshop (if it’s up and running by then)
If you want a set let us know in the comments or via email. Or even better, Facebook:
