This has been something my wife has been complaining about for years…
When the TWIKE’s canopy has been removed, the resulting draft on the passenger’s side is a pain for anyone with longer hair or sensitive muscles around the shoulders.
I’ve thought about how a solution could look like – other than her looking like Grace Kelly with a scarf and all…
A wind deflector, attached to the existing snaps for the canopy, easily removable, should do the trick.
This entry will show you how to create such a deflector.
First of all, it’s time to go shopping at the hardware store….everyone likes shopping at the hardware store, am I right?
Buy M4 screws, washers, self locking nuts and a 25×35 plexiglass sheet.
Then order some snaps from a nautical store
Then measure the distance between the snaps on the TWIKE – drill holes in the plexiglass…
Attach the deflector and try it out!
It’s the perfect solution to the problem – my wife is very, very happy.
I will change the current plexiglass to a fully transparent one soon. Otherwise this is the perfect solution to this problem.
