    Abstract

    In this thesis, it was shown that computer simulation models are a useful tool to guide bicycle design, as can be seen from the aforementioned design guidelines. Furthermore, it was shown that it is not always necessary to have the most complex models in order to improve cycling safety. Simulations with an open-loop bicycle - cyclist model were used to improve stability at low speeds. More complex models could be necessary, however, when testing more complex
    cycling situations.
