Description:

Here comes the heavy duty bicycle. I made it in cycles.

Most of the objects have a subdivision modifier, meaning you can check the amount depending on your computer, especially for the 3d view window; some computers may hang! This is a high poly stuff.

However, rendering is relatively smooth, especially when I consider my 2GB RAM computer and renders it at 1min 30s.

Parenting

<ul>

<li>The frame acts as the main parent of all the objects.</li>

<li>The rims are the parents for each wheel, so, remember to always select it when rotating the specific wheel.</li>

<li>Saddle is the parent of its components.</li>

<li>The steering is the parent of the front wheel and other related objects.</li>

</ul>

    I like bikes because I'm a bike rider since I's young. Your model is a pretty and detailed one. Good job, Eric. Keep going, man. Regards.

    How did you make the chain. BGE or curve modifier?

    Great model...but I think it belonged to Grandma...(boys bikes traditionally have a brace running between seat shaft and handle bars...don't know why....I've crushed the jewels many times on it)
