Developed by the Renowned
Bath Institute of Medical Engineering in close cooperation with
members of the Restricted Growth Association, the BIME Bike is the
result of a careful design evaluation and consultation process.
Where conventional cycles often present significant issues for
people with restricted growth, the BIME Bike is designed to provide
solutions. The frame geometry of the BIME has been significantly
altered to provide a seat position which provides vertical and horizontal
adjustments and a handlebar position which reflects a comfortable
position for riders with shorter limbs.
Three sizes of cycles are available and are designed to suit riders
from infants through to adults. The Large BIME model is fitted with
a five speed shimano indexed gear system and front and rear V-style
brakes. Alloy wheels with fitted mudguards, alloy ATB handlebars
with easy to reach brake levers combine to enhance the performance
and practicality for the riders.
The Small and Medium models are fitted with training wheels for
extra stability and can be removed when the rider is ready to progress.
The careful selection of components including shortened cranks to
reduce the pedaling arc and smaller brake levers and narrow diameter
handlebars ensure these bikes are fun to use and easy to control.
