check-point stub holders

7 posts in this topic

Do any of you guys use, or have you seen, anything kinda trick for holding check-point stubs during deset races? I'm currently using a medicine bottle with some duct tape over the top and a slit cut in that, but I have to believe there is something cleaner than this. I'm trying to come up with something myself but thought I'd check to see if anyone here had a good idea.

Thanks

Nobody mass produces one for bike guys, only car racers.

Team Green used to machine trick ones for thier factory bikes. We copied their idea and made a few which have since disappeared.

You're on the right track with the little bottle and you'll be as factory as anyone else nowdays!

I use the handy little nail and screw holders/containers that are sold at HomeDepot. Product is called a 'Viewtainer' They are clear plastic with a pinch and open mouth- work great with a zip tye or two. I bought the first one from a vendor at the Baja 1000 in Ensenada for $10...

HomeDepot sells them for $1....

A 35mm film canister with some duct tape over the mouth and a slit would probably work.

Must be fun riding down there after the hurricane!

hasta,

Mike

There's a shop in Anaheim called McKenzie's that sells spun aluminum stub cans. I hose clamped and duct taped mine on the bars and it lasted 440 miles at one of the 500's. You can reach them at 714-441-1212.

I saw your thoughts on a custom Stub can holder. I'm almost done with one for our Baja 1000 bike.I'll send a picture once it's finished(welded).I took a clutch perch,removed material where the pivot bolt was.Took a piece of aluminum rod stock drilled and opened it up untill it became a "can".It will be welded to the "perch" so that when you are sitting on the bike it will be facing outwards towards the grip.Also,the can opening uses ared rubber cap(with a slit opening).I'll have a picture this week.
