So what does it require to design a bike?
...and some coffee
Have an idea what you want it to do, first. Then figure out how you're going to achieve that aim. Taking into account potential problems etc. Get other people, who have experience of designing bikes, to give you advice. Maybe talk to them, and get them to knock up a few prototypes. Iron out the little problems, until you have something you feel is 'right'.
It's really not rocket science, it's fairly low-level engineering, really.
Then find a big **** off Taiwanese factory who can knock them out for you at £25 a pop, sell for £150- Job's a good un!
I might give it a go, actually. Then get a lucrative tie-in with Cannondale, to produce the Rude Boy. Like a Bad Boy, but ruder...
The 'Rude Boy' - a small aggressive in yer face bike for today's hooligan
That's the one!
Ittud be more of an urban stomper, mind, than a backwoods machine. Stylish and 'hip', it would evoke the Ska scene, and the image of cool urban living; non-conformist and individual...
See? I can do the spiel bollocks too!
Where's that Dave Loughran's number...
I used to work for a trailer manufacturer, that was a steel welded frame with 2 wheels bolted to it, can i have the job?
If you don't have a clue and sell them as "custom builds" then your laughing but sadly other people will also laugh at your designs.

You know that to design a bike you have to be able to ride a bike
Juan; the Rude Boy would not be a bike for riding, you silly arse! It would be for rolling down to the pub, and looking cool on!
It would come with essential accessories:

can we have an "on-one paperclip"?
