    Have you tried the internet?

    Seriously, do some thinking about the question(s) you are asking, google a bit and read what you find, then repeat as necessary.

    It's called research, and it doesn't consist of asking strangers to do your project for you.

    snide remarks aside, try doing a google search for something like "bicycle frame geometry", and check out howstuffworks.

    And to think we used to whine about having to make a few phonecalls and visit the library.

    Jeez! As many BS posts as there are on these forums by adults,I don't understand the need to bust balls on a school kid who asks a legitimate question.....


    AMD;
    Here is a few links to help you get going in the right direction.

    http://www.sheldonbrown.com/glossary.html
    A bicycling glossary.

    http://www2.sjsu.edu/orgs/asmtms/artcle/articl.htm
    An essay on frame materials by Scott Nichol (Ibis Cycles).

    http://www.jimlangley.net/ride/bicyclehistorywh.html
    http://patentpending.blogs.com/paten...le_technology/
    Some history.

    http://www.brantacan.co.uk/truss.htm.
    A traditional diamond type bicycle frame from an engineering standpoint is a truss. Also look up "truss". and maybe check out Alex Moulton who carries the truss concept to the extreme. http://www.alexmoulton.co.uk/frames.asp?id=links
