The frame is the main part of a bicycle and plays a key role in defining the aesthetics of the bicycle, its category and intended use. As well as having a structural function, i.e. holding all the components, it determines the position in which you will sit on the saddle for several hours while tackling long climbs, when you are on the wheel of your friends or even when you sprint to the finish line during the Gran Fondo races. Starting from the vertical tube or seat tube, which is the central element, we find the top or horizontal tube and then the down tube that joins the seat tube to the head tube through the bottom bracket shell. At the rear we have the chainstays or vertical and horizontal tubes. The rear dropouts are attached to the chainstays. The head tube is used to house the fork, to the lower end of which the dropouts for the front wheel are attached; it is the element on which most of the person's weight rests. The housing of the fork in the head tube is made up of the so-called headset, which consists of a series of cups and balls that are usually contained in a cage, which in turn is imprisoned by the upper cap at the top and the locking ring at the bottom. On the market today there is a huge range of possibilities, differing in price, weight, and tech specs, and the difference between one type of frame and another can be made on the basis of following features. The geometry: the various tubes lenght and the angles they form between them, already listed above. The type of application: racing, mountain bike (front suspension, full suspension or bi-axle), folding bike...The intended use: the sport or use for which the frame was designed.
