This paper deals with an atypical bike design. It can be considered atypical due to the materials used and the peculiar engine–chassis combination. The project was born as a consequence of CR S desire to access the so-called maxi-naked motorcycle market. 

A simulation-optimization approach to design efficient systems of bike-sharing

ABSTRACT Cycling can improve the health of riders, reduce carbon emissions from travelling, relieve congestion in the transport network, and save health and social care costs. According to the Australian National Cycling Strategy 2011-2016, the goal is to double the 

Human Control of Bicycle Dynamics with Experimental Validation and Implications for BikeHandling and Design
free download

ABSTRACT This paper presents brief interim results of this NSF-sponsored project. The overall research objective is to develop experimentally validated dynamic models of bicycles controlled by human riders. Toward this end we have in the first half of the project 

Design of Urban Transit Rowing Bike (UTRB)
