Been thinking about 3d printing some “mudguards” for the front-wheels of my board. Mostly it would be to keen surface water from kicking up onto my enclosure. Mostly from recent rain, not puddles.
My biggest concern would be from the wheels picking up small stones and having them jam under the guards., potentially locking the wheel up.
Is this a reasonable concern? I’ve had a stone flick up and go into the belt/pulley assembly. Took me a while to figure that out!
I though one solution would be to make a part of the guard very thin and fragile so that if something should get caught that it would break before breaking me.
I also want to have my guards clip on to the trucks. My trucks (Hobby King, similar to calibre trucks I suspect) have a square cross-section, so I think they would be pretty easy to get the guards to click on.
