  • Six mistakes that risk snapping your carbon frame
    Six mistakes that risk snapping your carbon frame
    February 20, 2024

    Six mistakes that risk snapping your carbon frame Carbon fibre is a great material for bikes, but it can be fragile. Here's how to avoid damaging your bike. Carbon fibre bike frames are great to ride, but they are more susceptible to damage than alloy, steel or titanium frames. When working on, moving or storing a carbon bike you need to be careful not to do anything that could lead to preventable damage. Here are six common mistakes that you need to avoid. Don't clamp the frame Clamping your bike in a work stand to carry out routine maintenance on the surface is a simple task. However, clamping in certain places could ruin your frame. Carbon fibre is designed to be very strong in its intended axis, but carbon tube profiles are not designed with clamping forces in mind. Therefore, clamping on the main tube profiles of the frame could lead to cracking and damage. Instead, clamp your bike via the seatpost, which is usually designed to withstand clamping forces. This applies when clamping your bike to a bike rack on a car too. Many bike racks rely on clamping the top tube, so avoid using these with a carbon bike. Look for a bike rack that is sold as 'carbon-friendly', as they do not exert the clamping force on the tubes. For complete peace of mind, check with the manufacturer for suitability before you attach your bike. Don't lean it up precariously How you leave your bike, either at a cafe mid-ride or at home, could lead to completely avoidable damage to the frame. If you lean your bike precariously, it can fall over, but additionally, the bars can whip around and damage your top tube. This can be especially damaging if your bars are not fully wrapped, since an unprotected carbon or aluminium bar rotating into the frame could easily have enough force to crack your frame or chip your paint. To ensure this mistake does not happen, lean your bike against a fixed surface with the saddle and the handlebar firmly in contact with whatever you're leaning it against. Make sure the bike is leaning into the surface at a slight angle so that it cannot fall away to the side. Don't crush the dropouts when flying When flying with your bike, you'll probably have to remove the wheels of your bike to fit it into your bike box or bag. If that's the case, make sure you look after the dropouts. Without the wheel in place to strengthen the dropouts at the fork and the rear triangle, the frame is weak in these areas. That means that if your bike gets squashed at all, say when it's stacked up under another bike box, there's a risk that your dropouts could be damaged. The best way to mitigate this is to use a combination of a hard-shelled bike box and a dummy hub that sits in between the dropouts to act as a compressive brace. Depending on the design of your bike, you might be able to use your thru-axles for this. Don't exceed the weight limit Bikes are becoming more versatile, and with the rise of bikepacking and multi-day adventure riding, we're using carbon fibre bikes ...

  • Carbon fiber composite materials are increasingly used in various fields
    Carbon fiber composite materials are increasingly used in various fields
    January 07, 2024

    Carbon fiber is a high-strength, ultra-lightweight inorganic polymer fiber material with a carbon content of more than 95%. It is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. It not only retains the inherent characteristics of carbon materials, but also has the soft processability of fiber materials. It is a material that is "soft on the outside and rigid on the inside". Today, we find new uses for carbon fiber almost every day. These tiny filaments, which currently come in a variety of functional shapes, are only one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. The fibers are processed into fabrics that can be used in subsequent molding processes and formed into tubes and sheets for construction, or as regular threads for filament winding. At first, carbon fiber was mainly used in military industry and aerospace. After continuous development, its application fields are expanding to industrial fields and ordinary civilian fields. With the rapid development of science and technology, carbon fiber is also used in the repair, renewal and reinforcement of infrastructure, the development of new energy and the production of propellers and blades for wind turbines; the manufacturing of automobile braking systems, rotating shafts, car bodies, etc.; applications in the electronic field mainly include High-precision antennas for communications, broadcasting, earth observation, space exploration, and various aircraft. In terms of cultural and sports products, carbon fiber materials have been promoted from fishing rods and golf clubs to tennis rackets, badminton rackets, ice and snow sports equipment, water sports equipment, etc. Among them, golf clubs, tennis rackets and fishing rods are carbon fiber composite materials for sporting goods. The three pillar products account for about 80% of this type of products. 01 Advantages of carbon fiber composites Composite materials are slowly replacing traditional materials. Common composite materials are good substitutes for traditional materials such as metal and wood in various fields. 1. Composite materials have high specific strength CFRP materials offer optimal strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, stiffness and durability. Due to its low density and tensile strength, carbon fiber is an excellent alternative to heavy metals like steel because it is lightweight. The inherent corrosion resistance of thermoset resins allows CFRP products to have a longer product life than standard metal materials because they will not rust or corrode. The high specific strength of composite materials is its greatest advantage. Although carbon fiber is stronger and stiffer than these two materials per unit weight, it weighs approximately 25% of steel and 70% of aluminum. Multilayer composite laminates absorb more energy than traditional single layers of steel, allowing high-end automotive engineers to reduce vehicle weight by 60% while improving crash safety. 2. Composite materials provide possibilities for new designs Composit...

  • 2023 Road Bike Industry Review
    2023 Road Bike Industry Review
    December 15, 2023

    2023 is going to ve over. There are not many new car releases this year, but it will definitely be a far-reaching year. The "emergence" of the Specialized Tarmac SL8 lets us know that "aerodynamic road bikes can be so light, and lightweight road bikes can be so aerodynamic." It must have taught a lesson to many brands that aerodynamic road bikes can also use the round tube shape to reduce weight. The most anxious thing is probably those brands that are about to release lightweight road bikes, whether they should go back to the drawing board and rebuild them. A new benchmark has been set, 685 grams, 209w (TOUR aerodynamic test). Such data will not have any rivals in three years. The only reason to criticize the Tarmac SL8 is "ugly". It’s not just about being lightweight and aerodynamic, the Tarmac SL8 is also very easy to ride. Trek Madone SL Trek launches the new seventh-generation Madone SL, bringing the new technology introduced in the Madone SLR to more riders than ever before. This new addition to Trek’s aero racing lineup is available at an even more affordable price, thanks to a 500 Series OCLV carbon frame, RSL aero bars, and RCS Pro stem combo; while maintaining the bike’s aesthetics and performance, it’s more Stays lighter, faster and more economical. A new weight-saving design and lightweight 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber make the Madone SL nearly 300 grams lighter than its predecessor. The Madone SL7 vehicle weighs about 8 kilograms and has a suggested retail price of 55,800 yuan. The weight of the Madone SL6 is about 8.36 kg BMC Teammachine R 01 Teammachine R embodies BMC’s vision of the future of race road racing – redefining what a race car can do and becoming an out-and-out race machine when every watt and every pedal counts. Of course, BMC has enough confidence, that is, it has in-depth cooperation with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to launch this new series of Teammachine R, which inherits F1 technology and is born for competition. After countless hours analyzing the best carbon stack base to maintain lightweight response, the frame and fork are as light as 910 grams and 345 grams respectively, making the Teammachine R an all-around racer at 7.00kg (size 54, Teamachine R 01 LTD) Sharp weapon.

  • What is the difference between the Giant Advanced SL and Advanced frames?
    What is the difference between the Giant Advanced SL and Advanced frames?
    December 03, 2023

    As the world's largest bicycle brand, Giant has its own carbon fiber factory, and different levels of frames are manufactured using different processes and carbon fiber materials. The latest TCR and Propel use two different levels of materials, Advanced SL-grade composite and Advanced -grade composite. The Advanced SL-level frame uses laser cutting carbon cloth and part of the robot rolling process, which can improve precision and reduce carbon cloth overlap. thereby reducing weight. When Giant releases new products, it always claims the data of its flagship Advanced SL, giving everyone the feeling that the frame is very light in weight and has a very high stiffness-to-weight ratio. For example, the third-generation Propel frame weighs 845 grams (920 grams with coating), the frame stiffness is increased by 9.9%, the pedaling stiffness is increased by 7.5%, and the stiffness when combined with the front fork is increased by 9.2%. Combined with the weight reduction, Giant calculates that overall efficiency has increased by 26.4%. The weight of the ninth-generation TCR M-size frame has been reduced to 765 grams, and the weight of the front fork is 330 grams. Although the stiffness is a little lower than the previous generation, considering the reduced weight, the stiffness-to-weight ratio has been improved. The stiffness-to-weight ratio is an indicator that Giant is proud of (and relies on for survival). Higher means faster acceleration and more direct feedback. We all know the weight and stiffness of the Advanced SL frame, but what is the Advanced frame? After all, most people will choose the Advanced level for cost-effectiveness. You can’t ride an Advanced while dreaming of an Advanced SL! Fortunately, TOUR gave us the answer. Comparing the third generation Propel Advanced SL and Propel Advanced 2, we can know the gap between Advanced SL and Advanced level frames. The same ML code frame: Picture Propel Advanced SL 0 bike 6.7 kg (excluding pedals) Picture Propel Advanced 2 complete bike 9kg The weight of the flagship Propel Advanced SL frame (including metal parts)/front fork/headset is: 975/411/58 grams respectively. The weight of the second-level Propel Advanced frame (including metal parts)/front fork/headset is: 1232/483/63 grams respectively. Yes, you read that right, the Propel Advanced is 334 grams heavier than the Advanced SL frameset. Frame stiffness data Propel Advanced SL Propel Advanced Head tube stiffness 114Nm/°(1.0) 104Nm/°(1.0) Front fork lateral stiffness 52N/mm(1.3) 62N/mm(1.0) Bottom bracket stiffness 74N/mm(1.0) 66N/mm(1.0) Seat tube stiffness (comfort) 169N/mm(2.0) 204N/mm(2.3) The steering stiffness and bottom bracket stiffness are higher than those of Propel Advanced SL, but they both reach TOUR's highest score of 1.0. The lateral stiffness of the front fork is actually higher than that of Propel Advanced. It seems that the front fork is heavier and stiffer. The lower the longitudinal stiffness of the seat tube means the fram...
