Tis project was part of a graduation assignment of Tom Schalkwijk from the TU-Delft. Tom did his graduation project for his Industrial Design Engineering Masters at WiMoto. The aim of the project was to show people what we do at WiMoto, and how important the geometry of a bike and the components used are. The feeling and feedback you get from a bike is very important for the overal handling and experience! We redesigned the geometry, placed a new upside down front fork, took some wheels and fabricated a custom swingarm. Together with a proper suspension setup we complete changed the way this bike handles.
We had some test pilots drive the bike in its original form, as well as the wimoto conversion. They couldnt believe that this was the same bike…. Awesome result!
