Title:
On the effect of chain stay impact on the structural safety of CFRP structures in mountain biking 
Abstract:
Carbon composites (CFRP) are commonly used in mountain bike frames allowing very high stiffness and strength at low weights. But CFRP is also sensitive to transversal impact loads, which damage the material from within and can affect the structural safety. A mountain bike frame suffers from different types of impacts, like crashes and stone impacts as well as contacts of the chain on the chain stay. In rough terrain or by passing obstacles, the chain starts oscillating vertically, on the slack s...    »
