Designing custom frames, the effects of geometry on the ride and using BikeCAD 

Course Outline

  • Education to help fitter translate a fit into a (custom) geometry
  • No experience needed
  • Participants from all over the world
  • Small groups (max 10 people – Flanders, 4 people – Bath)
  • Theoretical and practical (50/50)

Course Outcome

  • Bike handling how does is work
  • Geometry design what to look at
  • Bikecad, how does it work

“Last week I studied “inside” custom frame design! Especially for providing custom-made frames, I am now able to assess the design itself. Even make a frame “design” and submit it to the framebuilder. Especially useful when it comes to cyclists who (for whatever reason) cannot get what they need with a standard frame geometry.” 2018 Participant
