3D modeling of the disc-brake version, component compatibility check
3D modeling, the disc-brake version had a new bayonet fork. Here also shown with the integrated handlebar
3D modeling of the fork legs, flat-mount and dropouts
3D modeling with Solidworks, the flat-mount is recessed to hide the 140/160 rotor adapter. Thru-axle thread nut is replaceable and shared with other Factor frame models
3D modeling, ONE disc-brake version complete frameset
3D modeling, waterline section of the aero profiles used
3D modeling, rear dropout design and brake caliper clearance check

Aero road bike with Twin-vane downtube design. The project included the frame, fork, headset parts, integrated handlebar and seatpost design
