We were given our athlete's current training bike. I fabricated a temporary adjustable seat to find the best positioning of his body in relation to the cranks.
Detail of the adjustable seat for pinpointing seat height and angle.
Laser cut models to demonstrate and test fork rake and turning angles.
Demonstration model for the rider interaction component. Grips and crank-arms for transferring power from the rider to the gears. Offset angled cranks allow for better clearance, while electronic shift buttons on the grips make for a more fluid cycling experience.
The AD-016 prototype. 50% scale tabletop model, made largely from segmented 3D printed parts and CNC'd wheels, and hand finished.
