Late 2010 there was a design contest to design a bike for Africa. A very open contest with many opportunities but all facing the same challenge: approach the problem from an African point of view. The result was a bike-frame concept that could be assembled from a few standard pieces. This resulted in a frame that would be cheap in production, easy to repair and assemble. The materials were chosen to be durable and easy to obtain. This would result in a solution where the total production of the parts, but also the assembly could be done locally and totally independent. It was based on providing a solution and not only the means. Another important aspect would be the fact that the size of the frame could be determined by changing only the length of the tubes of the frame: resulting in possibilities to create a frame for children and adults.
