Calvin Botha is a Cape Town-based industrial designer with a strong passion for designing bicycles.

Botha’s company, Custom Racing Bikes produces a series of carbon fibre bicycles primarily used for ultra-marathon races. The frame of each bicycle is specifically formulated and designed to the customer’s requirements in terms of component selection and geometry. When the exact specifications of the bicycle have been approved, its frame is printed using a MakerBot Replica 2X.
