Construction of the frame.
- The construction of the frame ensures that all components during operation of the bicycle continue to function properly under all conditions.
The frame must not deform permanently in any case, the frame must be sufficiently strong.
The frame must also be so rigid so that the bracket, head tube and dropouts not distort much during movement.
In the vertical direction the frame does not have to be rigid because, in this direction some suspension is desired.
- In addition, the weight, price, durability, comfort, quality of workmanship, the appearance and usability important for the bike.
In this there are still some differences in bike brands.
As you understand an A bicycle brand has a better quality than a B, C or D segment.
- The quality of the construction of the frame is measured by three key points: the shape, material and manufacturing method.
These three aspects are not considered separately from each other but often depend strongly together.
Although it is not of interest to the user how a bicycle is being created, it is for a bicycle specialist often still of importance in order to have some knowledge of manufacturing methods, because the shape and the material are often chosen on the basis of the production method.
