What surgeons already use in the OR is now becoming road ready. 3D printed Titanium parts. The material that is hip for hips has been used in expensive bike frames for a while already. But now it can be made to really fit a riders individual body measurements. Australian bike manufacturer Flying Machine has premiered a custom model that truly deserves that label.
The 3DP-F1 named design is one beauty of a bike.
FM have revived the lugged frame to get the 3D printed Titanium lugs and the Titanium tubings together nicely with an epoxy binding.
The set up of the frame takes 10 days. And from there it is all luxurious paint jobs and fitting together the finest parts made from carbon, leather and rubber all to the customers wishes. 3 weeks all in all.
This bike is definitely an aesthetic work of art as well as groundbreaking science. Production versions of this machine will be available with FM´s full range of component options and custom color schemes.
