To get started quickly, choose a road or mountain bike below and click the Launch BikeCAD button to start using BikeCAD in your browser. Be aware that it can take several minutes to load the first time.
By default, the free version of BikeCAD does not require a plugin. Important note: The free version of BikeCAD takes a very long time to load. After the loading message disappears from the screen, the screen may remain blank for a couple of minutes as the app prepares to launch. The free version is also available as a Java applet which requires the Java plugin and a browser that supports the Java plugin. For info on the steps required to run the free version in applet form, see: bikecad.ca/java_1.8_security.
If you'd like to start from a different design, you can use any of the models in the Design archive.
To get a better feel for BikeCAD Pro before purchasing, try one of these free demo versions for PC or Mac. These run as standalone applications.
