My brief was to design bicycles for ten to fourteen year old children, and to develop platforms for more focused consumer segments school going kids. The Indian bicycle market has categories in the name of function, age-group, utility, comfort, aesthetics, image, etc called specials segment. These bicycles are sometimes very specific to the condition of the place, culture, society, and function.
user study - userstudy on different way og mounting the bicycle..boys age group of 9 to 14 years
Task analysis done, taking into account of a typically dressed Indian school going girl mounting the bicycle. part of the user study done for bicycle design.
bicycle - My design idea had to facilitate for manufacturer capabilities and mass production of the same. The proposed design form and language had to reduce product tooling and development costs. New age bicycle frame materials like carbon fiber, aluminum alloys or magnesium alloys were ruled out as these are yet to evolve in the mass-manufacturing sector in India. Hence, I explored steel tubes and sheet metal manufacturing capabilities.
