What type of filament did you use? I printed with PLA and one of the ears cracked as soon as I put my son's pedal on it. Does it matter if the tabs are facing to the X or Y?

I printed it in PLA and have not had any problems since i printed my first one. The orientation relative to X or Y should not matter.

It could have a lot to do with your print settings (how many walls, infill percentage), or could indicate another issue such as poor layer adhesion or under-extrusion.

What orientation did you print the pedal support? I'm assuming wall side down, but that overhand seems pretty steep.

Wall side down is correct, I designed it so the angles would be manageable when printed with a printer with decent cooling. I did not have any issues at all with the angle, and it has been holding my bike since I printed it.

How did you position this regarding studs in the wall? I'm printing these now and I'm almost done but I just realized the shelves have 3 holes and I'll only be able to get one screw into a stud.

Great design, btw.

The only think i put into a stud was the main pedal mount. For the wheel shelves I used regular drywall anchors (as you can not guarantee that there will be a stud where the shelves need to go). the shelved don't take much weight, and really just act as a means to stabilize the bike and keep your walls from being marked up. If the bike is in a location where it doesn't matter if the walls get marked up, then you really don't have to use the shelves, provided the bike is reasonably balanced.
