The present paper deals with the elasto-kinematical optimisation of a special downhill bike with a single suspension element. Starting from the motion equations of the bike, the loads due to the ride over a rough road acting on the various elements of the frame are determined. These loads are used to verify the frame resistance and to optimise its weight. Also the comfort of the driver is assessed.

Abstract

The present paper deals with the elasto-kinematical optimisation of a special downhill bike with a single suspension element. Starting from the motion equations of the bike, the loads due to the ride over a rough road acting on the various elements of the frame are determined. These loads are used to verify the frame resistance and to optimise its weight. Also the comfort of the driver is assessed.
