What kinds of metals are bicycles made of?



  1. 0 Votes

    Bicycle frames are often made of steel, aluminum alloys, titanium, carbon fiber, thermoplastic, magnesium, scandium or a combination of a few of them. Steel, aluminum, and carbon are the most common metals used. Magnesium is likely to corrode in places where the frame connects with other parts of the bike. Thermoplastic was used in the 90’s to create a recyclable bike, but they are very rare today. Other bicycles have been made with bamboo or wood, but those were used mainly for aesthetic appeal rather than functionality and safety.
