Pinarello Plastic Road Bicycle
7th Term Independent Concept Study
     The concept for 2015 is a proposition to the bicycle market, by introducing an entry level light weight bicycle using a low cost lightweight injection mold-able plastic as the base material, and mounting the injection molded piece to a machine welded inner frame.


    
The $200-350 price range is currently saturated with heavy steel frame bicycles.

     "The intent of this project was to figure out a sustainable method to quicken assembly and avoid the costly main body assembly time"
   
     "In order for this process to work the type of material and mode of assembly would have to be exponentially faster than the current trend of bicycle production and assembly."
