COMPONENTS OF THE BICYCLE

COMPONENTS OF THE BICYCLE This diagram illustrates the location of the important parts of a typical bicycle.

 The basic equipment on a bicycle includes a lightweight frame of thin tubing; wheels (usually spoked) with inflatable tires; an adjustable saddle or seat; brakes for stopping; handlebars for balance and steering; and a drive train, usually consisting of a continuous chain driven by foot pedals, for propelling the bicycle. The bicycle also may have gears for easy operation against strong winds and up hills, a suspension system for cushioning against bumps (particularly over off-road terrain), and various accessories for safety and comfort.
