A skateboard holder for your bicycle.
Four on Two was designed by Bianca Del Rio Kodato, Clyde Montgomery, Liam Haigh and Luca Jansen. The goal was to design an affordable and simple skate bike rack that would be easily detachable, work with multiple sizes of bike frames, and not require a rear wheel rack. Our intended audience are skateboarders who use their bycicles as their primary means of transportation.
As a research project to teach students how to efficiently model for 3D-printing outputs, our group decided to approach this challenge as a learning experience to research and explore how 3D printed plastics behave, their properties, and benefits and disadvantages. A side interest we had was to learn how to work through the most efficient way to produce a product in small scale.
The sliding clip at the bottom gives an extra support for the board's weight. It takes advantage of the plastic's flexibility creating a system similar to a money clip, in which the board slides in and becomes quickly secured, reducing the risk of the skateboard swivelling and rattling while the bike is in motion.
Project date: February - April 2022
For: Maxi Challenge; Part Design & Digital Output class - Emily Carr University of Art + Design
