Frame-Bicycles-Are-Light-Weight-And-Have-A-Fiber-F284 Frame-Bicycles-Are-Light-Weight-And-Have-A-Fiber-F284 Document Transcript

  • frame bicycles are light-weight and have a fiber frame that is non-metallic and composite. The material is known to be strong, corrosion-resistant, light-weight,and in great demand. One of the major advantages offiber is that it can take any desired shape, and can be used for multiple purposes.
  • The Frame Advantage A frame bicycle can be custom-made in sucha way that it is strong at places where it needs to withstand pedalingforces, and the material allows flexibility in sections where it needs tobe comfortable Usually, the lateral tubes used in frame bicycles arestrengthened, while the vertical ones are compliant This liberty canbe achieved only with fiber frames, and is difficult to achieve withother frames
  • The Designs A frame bicycle makes use of cylindrical tubes joinedwith lugs and adhesives for the frame These materials have a highdensity and strength, and are manufactured in a single piecesometimes, and this process is called monocoque constructionHowever, monocoque frames have low resistance and are prone todamage in case of a crash
  • Such bicycles with a frame that is made of fiber can be spotted inmany places, especially in many triathlons and individual time races,as the material can be molded to give these cycles an aerodynamicshape and look This type of frame is heavier than others and isaerodynamically efficient, so that the bicycle can achieve higherspeeds with greater stability Optimizing The Frame Technology Attimes, materials like metallic boron is added to fiber in order toincrease the stiffness
  • A high end frame bicycle has Kevlar fibers that help in improving theimpact and damping strength in chainstays and downtubes fibershave 1/4th the density of steel and have greater mechanicaladvantages
