DDP - Dynamic Design Process
The DDP project began when we started asking whether we can combine the customisability of a custom bicycle with the scaling set-sized system used for mass manufactured frames, allowing us to design fully custom bicycles without the need for a bike fit.
By studying cyclist anthropometrics and corroborating those values to bicycle geometric values, we have been able to create a system to design bicycle frames with only a few easy to obtain measurements. While dissimilar to a fully custom frame which requires a bike fit, this system will create a design very close to what we would obtain using a bike fit and allowing us to build these frames more quickly and more efficiently.
While in its most basic development form at the moment, this system has the scope to be explored and refined into a system we can use in the future to design bicycles better than ever.
