UCI-Frame-Approval

UCI approval protocol for Frame and fork

Create drawings and documentation for UCI compliance.  Liaise with the UCI through Open Trust for secure communication of your designs.  Technical Committee submission of non-compliant designs for UCI consideration.

Race Team Liaison

Working with your athletes and mechanics to understand their needs and create compelling product.  Evaluation of component compatibility with frames and forks.  Develop reports of the athletes and mechanics interaction with existing and new product.

Frame Geometry Development

Frame geometries are created with my proprietary Ergo Cyclist geometry program.  Developed with over seventeen years of custom and stock frame geometry development experience.  The program draws on my training as a Serotta, FIST and GURU fitter for road and time trial, triathlon and mountain bikes.  Combined with a unique perspective from a human factors and ergonomic view point.

Suspension Geometry Development

Utilizing CAD and Linkage to develop hard points for the basis of the frame's suspension geometry.  Keen understanding of the impact of suspension sag on the frames geometry and the interaction of the rider with the bike.

ISO 4210 structural testing simulation

Evaluation of your new frame and fork designs in Solid Works Simulation for motion and structural concerns based on ISO 4210.  This virtual test machine helps to isolate potential problem areas earlier in the design process.  It also has the flexibility to simulate your own internal testing requirements over and above the ISO 4210 requirements.

Your unique product begins here!

Every new project starts with and idea that grows into a unique product through the new product development process.  I will be your guide and product engineer through the product design phases needed to realize your idea's potential.
