The first Carbon Bike Solutions

This is the first Carbon Bike Solutions production carbon fiber Sponsored Bike.

Target price is £TBA, however if your carbon frame is beyond repair, you could just have me rebuild your bike with this frame, but with the straight forks, its an option?

memories of bianchi factory a brand so steeped in cycling history that tifosi the world over know it for one thing - the company color Celeste

It was a gray and rainy day when the RBA caravan pulled into the parking lot of the Bianchi factory. Luckily, fresh memories of a fine dinner the night before in the upper (old) town of Bergamo with RBA's resident gourmand, Tim Maloney, prevented the glum weather from getting me down.

The term group-set are defines a component manufacturer's organised collection of mechanical parts

The term group-set comes from the Italian word for group (‘gruppo’) and defines a component manufacturer's organised collection of mechanical parts. It generally refers to all of the ‘running’ components that make up a bicycle, excluding the frame, forks, stem, wheels, tires, and the bits you hold-on with, like the saddle and handlebars.

Shifting Gear is Basics of the Mountain Bike Techniques

Now you know what the Gear Shifting Components are, it is time to learn the Very Basics of the Mountain Bike Techniques of Shifting Gear.

* The right-hand lever operates the rear gear (moving the chain across the sprockets).
* The left-hand lever operates the front mechanism, which shifts the chain from one chainwheel to another.
* When the chain is on the big chainwheel you will be in a bigger gear - usually used for riding along the flat or downhill.

Manufacturing processes and market trends continue to literally shape the bicycle frame

Manufacturing processes and market trends continue to literally shape the bicycle frame. While not as common as it used to be, the process of butting is still used in the manufacture of bicycle frames. Meanwhile, steel, the long-running workhorse, is being replaced more and more by aluminum—its hardy cousin that grows less expensive every year. So what do you look for in a frame? Is next year's frame necessarily better than this year's?


Striving to shave precious grams from frame designs, manufacturers have employed all sorts of exotic metals and methods. Essentially, though, what you pay for is inversely proportional to the weight of your bike. The more you pay, the less it weighs.

women’s specific Geometry for bike frames

Traditional bike frames were made for ‘average’ men with an equal leg-to-torso ratio, thus when a women rides a traditional bike frame we tend to notice several things.  First is the height of the handlebars, because of our longer legs, by the time we get the seat height up to where we need it, we find that we reach too far down to reach the shifters.  In addition, because the frame was designed for someone with a longer torso, we often feel ‘stretched-out’.  So, women’s specific frames will make be adjusted to get us in a comfortable position. 

1. Top-tube  The top-tube, or reach, is shorter so that we are not too stretched out, ensuring that we’re not putting unnecessary stress on the lower back, shoulders or elbows.

‪2. Headtube  The headtube is higher giving us a proper position and ensuring that we’re not in an overly aggressive position, this position

Choosing the right bike frame size

each size bicycle frames have different sizes, so there is no relationship between height chart man with a frame or absence of a formula to determine the proper frame size. and this article
