The Frame The design of the frame must also differ from a traditional bicycle as it needs to accommodate the battery but also be extremely lightweight. This is simply because just like with the older designs and batteries we don’t want to be using up precious power moving the bike itself. After-all the goal is to propel the rider sitting on the bike so the lighter we can make the bike the further it can travel before you need to recharge the batteries. To get the strongest and lightest weight for the frame the material most designs tend to use is lightweight aluminum alloy. This material provides a sturdy and lightweight frame commonly used for those same properties and well proven in racing bicycles.
