PARLEE CYCLES

As an engineering intern back in the summer of 2014, I worked on testing and creating metrics for a new tube design dubbed ‘recurv’. The genesis of recurv was to create a new approach to an aero bike that is not only consistently faster, but also torsionally stiffer to make the bike faster and more efficient. I helped founder Bob Parlee, as well as chief designer Brandon McKean determine what the best implementation of the new design, as well as confirm the efficiency of the new shape.
