    This also reminds me of elements from other 90`s bikes like softride (in the seat frame), and aerodynamic LOOK frames (on the steering system). But I think it is smart. Nice simplicity, Great Job!

    reminds me of an old specialized concept called the cricket. cool for a student project, but not at all original.

    The graphics look old and tired to me. Should have named it ‘Old Navy’.

    This looks just like the original Zipp 2001 frames of the 90′s but hopfully much lighter. They were rocket fast and comfortable. These could use a better color scheme..

    Why does anyone waste their time discussing 3D modelled crap that would never work. Budding bike designers: Build a prototype and test, test, test before you get clever on a 3D package. A three year old’s understanding of engineering would also help.

    A three year old’s understanding of engineering would also inform you that “getting clever on a 3D package” would allow you to prototype and test in an environment that is cost and time conserving. A program like Solidworks and tools like CosMos let you build, model and test under real world conditions, not to mention having complete drawing ready to go to the manufacturer! I don’t know about the rest of you, but building a bike out of any material that is designed to be as light as possible is not something you just jump into. It is expensive and stupid. Who would spend $6000 on the materials needed to build the above bike and break it because your design was slightly off, when you could have learned your mistake for free by building a model like he did!! You have a lot to learn about engineering my friend! But you don’t have to listen to me, I’m just a three year old!
