Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

3D Frame rendering software

Some one once posted a link to some awesome software that was downloadable for crating a 3 dimensional model of a bicycle. If you have this or know where to get/download/buy could you help a guy out. Thanks.

I use 3ds or Rhino to build my 3d models. Rhino's intuitive enough to pick up and start working with no instruction. Its nurbs engine is amazing.

I used C4d 10 at my last office [we were mac-based] and loved it.

I think for the average joe BikeCAD would be fine, not everyone wants to learn AutoCAD/Rhino/Cinema/FormZ.

oh, and hows it going Prolly... funny meeting you here!
