The frame is the heart of the bike, a lightweight chassis that the rest of the components are bolted to. Each frame I list will be clearly marked as to it's intended purpose - whether road, MTB, cyclocross or other form of riding. Similarly, I try to include as much information as I can regarding the materials used, such as carbon, alloy or steel, as well as the sizes available and full specification.
