    Kind of ugly. Kind of not. Shape though? Damn all these design feeds and their bike projects with silly belt-drives.

  • Marginally less painful to look at than the text was to read.

  • "Where did I lock the bloody thing.. "

  • By the sounds of it it's made out of PEEK, really expensive thermoplastic polymer that's ridiculously tough. But the stiffness of anything that can be injection moulded is shiiiiiiiiiit.

    That is what I assumed:

  • What's up with that head tube?

    Love this comment:
    Have fun riding (read as falling) that bike with a headtube angle like that. Consult with a framebuilder before constructing prototypes.

  • What's particularly ridiculous is that they claim this could somehow be practical. I guess that's what differentiates a good designer from a bad designer.
    Now, if they made a bike out of this, it really would be the ultimate machine:

  • errr, I can see this bike, it is not clear. Even if you take away the visible bits (wheels / bars etc) then it can still be seen.

    Should be 'unclear bike'...

  • I guess that's what differentiates a designer from an engineer, understanding material properties and whether they make it suitable for an application.

    Not at all; a good industrial designer will have excellent knowledge of materials (I am one myself). This is what differentiates a good designer from a bad one!

  • I'm gonna stick around to see where this is going...

  • Still silly, but I like this one much more:

  • Anything with a growler of beer is better than clear.

  • More design bullshit:

    There is a reason the bicycle has barely changed since the late 19th century, right?

    Rep!

    saddle angle ?

  • I like the idea of using plastic to produce a bike frame.

    Just a little pointer to those 'materials experts'. Plastic is different to that grey shiny stuff, often referred to as metal. So its probably a massive waste of clever material. If you simply use the same tube dimensions as a steel bike.

    I fancy knitting a bike.

    Shape groovy design from extruded PS foam.
    Cut into separate tubes.
    Cover tubes in colourful knitted woolen tubes.
    Glue tubes together.
    Sew knitted bits together.
    Coat in several layers of thermosetting resin.
    Cure.
    Remove foam inner with weak solvent.

    Thats just something that popped into my messy head. Its fecking stupid. Still better than that snaptastic shite ^^^^

    buys knitting needles, and fluffy pink wool

  • I'm going to make an ice bike for use in cold countries.

    It will do amazing skids.

  • You could fill the tubes with vodka.

  • I could fill my tubes with vodka.

  • ^Rep!

  • I'll have one made out of en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graphene, with 1 micron thick tubes

  • Straight gauge gas pipe.

  • Worthy of a new thread? Straight to Anti, do not pass go, do not collect $fiddeh....
