Featured Project : ORYX Time Trail Bike
Harald Cramer's ORYX design won him a $1,000 scholarship from the 2007 Dimension 3D Printing Group Extreme Redesign Contest. The ORYX bicycle is a custom-made time trial bike designed to be shockproof without loosing traction. The one-sided wheel suspension and crank have been shifted to the inside, which Cramer says adds to the overall aerodynamics. The crank itself has been integrated into the bicycle frame, and includes an enclosure for the chain to help prevent injuries. Cramer's concept also finds a solution to the challenge of changing tires. One push of a button makes it possibly to easily slide the wheel off from one side of the bike and cut down on the repair time and hassle.
