Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Has a company 3D printed a bike from CRP yet? CRP being carbon reinforced plastic..

Maybe someone has injection molded one?

I'm wondering what the next advancement will be. Google doesn't turn up much.

3D printing of metal. Some devices requiring high strength have already been printed from stainless and Ti like firearms. Bikes could be next. The main issue is the size printer required to print a monocoque structure. But an infinite amount of shaping could be incorporated into Ti or SS frames with printing including internal ribs and other difficult to form structures.

Charge Cycles made dropouts for a Ti CX bike with a 3D printer a few years ago, and my frame builder is looking into 3D printed dropouts for future frames, but he hasn't used any yet.

I have seen the lugs, strange bridge like frames, etc.. It seems like if you could let the print head "walk" on two rails, it could easily do a full frame.

I wanna see more of the Eurobike frame.

I would like it if you would please be truthful. You've got 29 threads started and only ONE was locked. Anyone can go to your profile to see that what you are saying is not really the case. I dont' understand why you even said that.

Shame on you.

The really cool part is that when the wife asks why you have 22 bikes & why anyone would need so many, you can simply say, "Ya, I meant to hit '2' and fat-fingered it. My bad!"

No reason it needs to be a monocoque frame; like the Bhulk, frame bits could be joined. Ralf Holleis did his VRZ bikes from 3D printed Ti lugs and CF tubes a couple of years ago: http://youtu.be/HwJwcnV-wso

Fettlers uses 3D printed molds to do CF layups, which is another way to incorporate the printing tech: https://youtu.be/5gFyqFGtqsM

I've got one from the '80's. It was done on a dot matrix printer though, so it's kind of crummy.

The last thread I started that was locked doesn't even show up under my profile.

Technically not "all" threads, and technically not "my" threads, but many of the threads that I have posted in lately have been locked.

Calling me a liar and saying "shame on you" is a bit over the top for a jokingly naming this thread don't you think?

Saying that the moderation team locked ALL of YOUR threads is over the top and unfair. And yes, the one that is locked does show up on your profile, as does all of your threads. So no, if you did not tell the truth, that is a lie. And yes, shame on you for lying.

The LAST thread I started that was locked IS NOT under my profile.

It was a thread about a calculator that shows how much faster you go by dropping weight. It and all of the posts I made in it are gone.

Now you are lying.

Shame on you.

Discussing the accuracy of the claim that all one's other threads have been locked within a thread whose title is "Since all my other threads get locked...." seem appropriate to me.

When a number or % gets small enough it become impossible to measure, therefore in the real world, it ceases to matter.

You should get in on the watt loss discussion that chain friction causes.

They need someone to chime in and say that 1 watt "matters", since people get dropped off of a Sunday fun ride without the extra watt.

If I thought that it would cost me 25 seconds on a 5 mile climb & descent as you posited with your example, I would.

Anyone can go onto your profile and see the truth. So that being said, I think that goes to prove that the moderation team did not do as you say. I'm satisfied with that.
