We recommend installing BicycleParameters with conda or pip.

For conda:

$ conda install -c conda-forge bicycleparameters

For pip:

$ pip install BicycleParameters

The package can also be installed from the source code. The options for getting the source code are:

  1. Clone the source code with Git: git clone git://

  2. Download the source from Github.

  3. Download the source from pypi.

Once you have the source code navigate to the directory and run:

>>> python install

This will install the software into your system. You can check if it installs with:

$ python -c "import bicycleparameters"

Example Code

>>> import bicycleparameters as bp
>>> import numpy as np
>>> rigid = bp.Bicycle('Rigid')
>>> par = rigid.parameters['Benchmark']
>>> rigid.plot_bicycle_geometry()
>>> speeds = np.linspace(0., 10., num=100)
>>> rigid.plot_eigenvalues_vs_speed(speeds)
