Designer Makes Carbon Fibre Bike Frame From CAD Design to Finish
Making a beautiful carbon fiber bike frame, from CAD design to downhill race, is not a difficult feat for Vlad Yordinov. You probably won't manufacture your own homemade carbon fiber mountain bike frame any time soon; however, watching one talented bike designer and Easy Composites Ltd YouTube channel make one from scratch is actually pretty satisfying.
In this in-depth, nearly 40-minute long technical discussion video, the two covers the entire process of taking an original CAD design for a downhill mountain bike frame through to a fitted out, rideable prototype.
The video shows the interesting operation that differs from a high-volume production model would require, and it is a clever operation indeed. That bike looks amazing when you think about the fact that it's essentially a prototype.
The video is so detailed that it could almost be used as a making a carbon fiber bike frame tutorial. The frame looks awesome, and the explanations are on point, what more could you ask?
There has been a lot of talk about China and a new Sputnik moment for America, but such talk ignores why the original Sputnik moment was so traumatizing.
