Forks for 12in wheels. Only way I could think to do these forks was to make them to match a full size drawing

Bike Fitting and BikeCad at The Bicycle Academy

 

In March 2014 I attended a one day course on bike fitting and the use of the computer aided bicycle design software BikeCad which appears to be the market leader. I was unsure as to whether I wanted to purchase this without seeing it in action first as the online version would not run properly on my computer and in any case is limited in function. The idea of the course from a bike builder’s perspective is to learn how to fit a person to a bike and then transfer that information into the BikeCad program to design a perfectly fitted bike.
