#twoweeksofcode: Handlebars

This is part of the Two Weeks of Code.

Handlebars: A very simple (and graphically rather unsophisticated) web app built for a friend of mine who is a cycling enthusiast. If you move from one bike to another, you want the relative positions of the seat and the handlebars to be the same, because that’s the position you’re used to riding in — but the sizes of the two bikes are different.

So, how do you adjust the various parts of the new bike so that the handlebars are in the same place as on your old bike relative to the seat? That’s what this app calculates, or at least lets you experiment with visually.

If it had a big catalogue of bike dimensions for all sorts of different bikes (and it got a serious boot in the spuds graphically so it didn’t look rubbish), I think it’d be a useful little tool for cycling enthusiasts.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
