dc.description.abstract In this paper we are presenting a new design for the standard triathlon bicycle. Its purpose is to reduce the continuous wear on an athlete's muscles, specifically, the muscles that are also used during the running and swimming portion of the race. Through the design process we decided on a prone style bicycle, which has two independent gear systems, one for the legs and one for the arms. The final bicycle will be made of titanium, with a flat rectangular seat. A continuously variable transmission will be utilized for the drive train. Our results show that this bicycle design will perform equal to or better than current triathlon bicycles. en
