Bicycles have bones, believe it or not. Yup, similar to the human skeleton, the bicycle has a frameset that holds all its parts together. While humans are stuck with what they're born with, cyclists, on the other hand, can create a Frankenstein of a bicycle depending on their requirements. Keep in mind, however, that framesets play a large role in the overall weight of the entire bicycle. The frame is the foundation of the bicycle, and choosing the right material is important. Light and agile? Consider carbon or titanium. If you're working with a budget, however, think about a steel frame instead. While heavy, it is strong and typically inexpensive. And, as always, a happy medium between strength and lightness is aluminum. The good news is whether you are looking at titanium, steel, aluminum, or carbon, you should be able to find a wide range of road bike framesets on eBay. So what are you waiting for? Create the bike you've always wanted today.
