3.0 Conclusion The frame is considered as the main unit of a bicycle. Hence, material selection is significant in determining the tensile strength and the durability of the bicycle structure. We have studied about the characteristics and properties of three types of materials, which are stainless steel, aluminium and carbon fibre for the material selection of bicycle frame. Based on the discussion about the criteria of materials selection, the properties, characteristics including the advantages and disadvantages of these materials, stainless steel is appraised to be the most suitable material for the bicycle frame. Stainless steel is selected due to its high toughness, resistance on corrosion, high affordability, high malleability and durability, low maintenance cost and easy to be repaired when damaged. Besides, stainless steel is considered a green material because there will be no degradation in its recycling process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
