A bicycle frame is the main component of a bicycle, onto which wheels and other components are fitted. The modern and most common frame design for an upright bicycle is based on the safety bicycle, and consists of two triangles: a main triangle and a paired rear triangle. This is known as the diamond frame. Frames are required to be strong, stiff and light, which they do by combining different materials and shapes.
A frameset consists of the frame and fork of a bicycle and sometimes includes the headset and seat post. Frame builders will often produce the frame and fork together as a paired set.
Bike frame features short chainstays, a tall bottom bracket, a long head tube and small hollow dropouts with integrated chain tensioners. Simplicity rules on the Discovery. The frame’s front triangle makes use of traditional round Nightshift style top and down tubes with proven internal gusseting. Removable brake hardware and Gyro compatible as well.
