3D Printed Bicycle Frame Wins 3D Printing Competition

Part-time bicycle frame maker Ralf Holleis calls it “sexy”. The judges in the eighth annual Purmundus Challenge competition for outstanding achievement in 3D printing called it “very desirable”.

Whatever your view of bicycle frames, Holleis’ “Moorhund” frame represents a turning point in custom cycle manufacturing.

Hmm. Well, at least it’s made out of metal. Running the cables through the frame is somewhat innovative, but I’m not sure it’s all that practical since I don’t see it really saving anything. Also, frankly, I’m not sure I’m that confident in 3D Printing technology that I’d want to risk my life on it.
