The bike is over 200 years old. Its evolution proceeded quickly when it was first invented, and the changes continue to this day.

The bike can trace its history back to Germany in the year 1817, when inventor Karl Drais developed a push bike - one without pedals. Like every other invention there were actually a few contributors to the changing design over time.

Other inventors who made a contribution to the development of the bike are Scottish blacksmith Kirkpatrick MacMillan, Frenchmen Ernest Michaux and Pierre Lallement, and Englishman James Starley - whose cycle design, with the giant front wheel and the very miniscule rear wheel was called the "penny farthing." The "safety bicycle", with both wheels the same height in a "diamond frame" that is still in use today, came into use in 1885, and in 1888 rides became much more ok with the invention of the "pneumatic" tire by Scotsman John Boyd Dunlop.

Improvement continues just over one hundred years on, the basic design of the bicycle hasn't modified, but enhancements are nonetheless being made all of the time. The "new age" materials now in use - aluminium, titanium and carbon fire - have enabled bicycles to be made just about as robust as can be desired, but with the light weight, which most of the people today desire. The diamond bicycle frame contains a sequence of tubes: the main triangle which contains the head tube, top tube, down tube and seat tube. The rear triangle includes the seat tube, paired chain stays and seat stays. What are cycle frames made of? The metal they are made from is crucial, because lots of factors need to be considered: the density of the metal will work out how heavy the bike is and the rigidity will affect the ride comfort and the control potency.

There's always the risk of crashes so yield strength is important - how much force will permanently "deform" the metal? Also a consideration for crash-worthiness is the elongation capacity of the metal. And then there's the fatigue limit and the endurance limit. A lot of bike frames are made of steel. It's got all of the best qualities required for a frame, but its serious downside is that it is awfully heavy. Aluminium is the hip metal to be used in bike frames, due to its really low weight. But the difficulty with aluminium is that it is really simple to bend it - and therefore break it. Titanium is fast changing into a popular material for bike frames. It's powerful, and itís light...and itís extraordinarily expensive. Only top of the range bicycles are made with titanium. Carbon fibre is a non-metallic material for making cycle frames. It is light weight, resists corrosion, and can be formed into practically any shape desired. However, carbon fibre does have low impact resistance, so it is not so good for the mountain biker, and naturally it's pricey. Bike makers are always fiddling with new materials, of course. Now, the use of thermoplastics is being tested, as is that of magnesium.

There are great days ahead for the joy of cycling, so keep your helmet on and go full speed ahead!

Your first ride down the steep slopes of a real mountain on a rock scattered trail on an old bike will undoubtedly leave you convinced to the prerequisite of buying a robust and resilient mountain bike frame! It, as your body will attest, is going to take in a large amount of shock. If you invest in a good mountain bike frame, it will do even more: it will really absorb, into its metal and elements, lots of the shock that might otherwise move readily into your own components! Design and development of mountain bike frames has advanced centuries in the last couple of decades. What's available today only remotely has a resemblance to the first supposed mountain bicycles some of us rode in the early nineteen-eighties. Today, mountain bike frames are available in geometries and materials unimagined 2 decades gone. What you want is going to be a mixture of your own body and your individual intentions. If you like the excitement of high speed downhill rides, you'll need a massively different bike than if you ride on level trails. If your preference is to sidestep going over rocks, you'll need a different bike than somebody whose eyes light up at the look of a stone dispersed pathway.

Think about what you enjoy before you go buying a mountain bike. Mountain bike frames spend a bunch of time on roads these days, too. The majority of the bikes seen in town appear to be mountain bicycles or some half-breed of the mountain bike.

What they add to real off-road riding (shock assimilation, simple gearing, and responsive handling) might be necessary but what they add to street riding (shock assimilation, simple gearing, and responsive handling) is no less appreciated by the casual rider. You may even find mountain bikers on most any of the long, multi-day road tours so more popular. You won't find these riders among the front pack though: a mountain bike frame isn't made for efficient road use, even if it does add comfort.

Getting a mountain bike frame that is your bag is possible either in person at a good bike store or online if you know your size and use wants, but the hugely different frame geometries make riding a bike before purchasing it more critical than ever. The standard triangular structure of a road bike frame is often significantly skewed on today's mountain bike frames, rendering the triangle just about unrecognizable. Shopping at a good bike store will put you in contact with bike execs that will be ready to suggest the right geometry for your unique physique and your own unique preferences and strengths as a rider.
