ive been using the paterek program to get dimensions for my frames, but i have ended up changing them when i get it down on paper. ive used to free version of bikecad to get a general idea of what i want. i have now resorted to just doing it without either programs and just use the ol paper/pencil method.
i like the idea of the bikecad program and im thinking of getting it. i want to know if anyone owns the bikecad pro program and if so, do you like it? is it actually a good tool to fit a rider to the frame?

I just draw standard 2D drawings, these give me angles and part lengths and I just fit from that point on. Youc an also import other drawings and scale them.
