    Too nice to take out in the mud!

    Thank you, but it will not touch the mud, hehehe. Maybe I will this winter...

    Almost there!

    I have modelled a 3T Ergoterra, Avid Shorty Ultimate with Cane Creek SCR-5 and Rotor Agilis Crankset.

    I hope you like it.

    It's all very impressive to me;

    It's getting hard to pick on these things, they're getting so good! Of course it won't go very far without a chain, but we already know you can handle those. No flats or bent rims either, anymore!

    If I had to pick on something, and it is a very minor point to be sure, some of the bits seem a little "contrasty" on the edges to me. Most of the drawing has a very nice soft edge to it, as it would appear in a photo or to the eye. The previously mentioned chains, and also the edges of these tires, seem a little harsh or contrasty. The chains also apperar a bit two-dimmensional to me, but that is another issue.

    Can you soften the edges of things by choice? These things draw attention to themselves, to my eye. Anything that draws attention is likely in NEED of some attention, in my opinion. They make me look at them, not because of interest, but because of visual balance. It is a very subtle thing, and I admit that most people would not even notice them, but often these things can make a surprising difference, even to those that don't consciously note such things.

    Most of the times it depends on the lighting in the scene, but of course, I can soften the edges. I use to do that, but with the tire pattern and the chain, I skip this.

    Here you have the finished bicycle, I hope you like it:

    Just curious.

    How long does it take you to do a bike like the last minibike?

    I cannot tell exactly because I have used some parts already modelled for previous bikes, but if I have to model the bike from scratch, it would be around 15-20 hours aprox + rendering time.

    That's real quick. I spend like 5 hrs just to nail the numbers on paper for a frame.

    Thatīs true!

    But if one of these designs were meant to be built up, I would spend more time designing the geometry, wheel clearances... so the final time would be a bit higher.

    Hmm, ok, so not much to gain in that aspect.

    It looks real impressive though

    Thank you! The job is not related with 3D modelling or bikes, but itīs related with my academical background: industrial automation.

    Anyway, I will continue with this as soon as I have spare time to do it.

    Cheers!!!
