The Dynamic Design Process, or DDP, is a system created in collaboration with the company I started on my entrepreneurial placement year, Ember Cycles. The system takes some design ideas from a completely custom built bicycle process and some ideas from mass manufactured frames. The outcome allows for the creation of custom bicycle frames without using expensive, time-consuming methods.
By designing an ‘ideal’ frame solution for the 50th percentile human, adaptations can be made to fit a range of sizes, from 1st to 100th percentile to the frame geometry. Then, by allowing for the difference in size in relation to geometry, such as a smaller person having a fewer degrees in a head angle and a larger person having more degrees, each frame can feel like the ideal geometry, no matter the person riding it.
