Components

There are many parts on a bike. The main parts being the wheels, frame, saddle, handle bars, alonth with all the other components. We also consider helmets as a key component.

 Wheels give the fundamental purpose to a bicycle; that’s why we call it a “bi” (meaning two) and “cycle” (meaning turning). Abicycle wheel is made up of a hub, spokes, a rim, tire, and tube. Each part of the wheel may require different material properties.

 The frame is the core of the bicycle as a complete functional unit. Material selection importance should lay with strength and weight (i.e. strength/density materials and processing). A major consideration is the frame design.

“Components” is the bike industry’s name for the moving or mechanical parts: everything but the wheels, frame, seat and handle bars. We look beyond the overall material importance of the components. We focus on the parts function, wear, weight, and cost. Some examples of the bicycle components arebrake/shifting levers, crank, front derailleur, rear derailleur,cassette, and chain.
