Aluminium or aluminum is a chemical element with symbol Al and atomic number 13.
A bearing is a machine element that constrains relative motion to only the desired motion, and reduces friction between moving parts.
A bicycle, also called a cycle or bike, is a human-powered, pedal-driven, single-track vehicle, having two wheels attached to a frame, one behind the other.
Bicycle and motorcycle dynamics is the science of the motion of bicycles and motorcycles and their components, due to the forces acting on them.
Bicycle and motorcycle geometry is the collection of key measurements (lengths and angles) that define a particular bike configuration.
A bicycle frame is the main component of a bicycle, onto which wheels and other components are fitted.
A bicycle handlebar or bicycle handlebars is the steering control for bicycles; it is the equivalent of a steering wheel for vehicles and vessels.

The Cannondale Bicycle Corporation is an American division of Canadian conglomerate Dorel Industries that supplies bicycles.
Carbon fiber reinforced polymer, carbon fiber reinforced plastic or carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFRP, CRP, CFRTP or often simply carbon fiber, carbon composite or even carbon), is an extremely strong and light fiber-reinforced plastic which contains carbon fibers.
A dashpot is a mechanical device, a damper which resists motion via viscous friction.
A downhill bike (also known as a downhill mountain bike) is a full suspension bicycle designed for downhill cycling on particularly steep, rocky trails.
An elastomer is a polymer with viscoelasticity (i. e., both viscosity and elasticity) and very weak intermolecular forces, and generally low Young's modulus and high failure strain compared with other materials.
Felt Racing is an American bicycle manufacturer based in Irvine, California.

The head tube is the part of a cycle's tubular frame within which the front fork steerer tube is mounted.
The headset is the set of components on a bicycle that provides a rotatable interface between the bicycle fork and the head tube of the bicycle frame.
Hooke's law is a principle of physics that states that the force needed to extend or compress a spring by some distance scales linearly with respect to that distance.

Magnesium is a chemical element with symbol Mg and atomic number 12.
A motorcycle fork connects a motorcycle's front wheel and axle to its frame, typically via a triple tree, which consists of an upper triple clamp joined to a lower triple clamp via a steering stem, a shaft that runs through the steering head, creating the steering axis.
A mountain bike or mountain bicycle (abbreviated Mtn Bike or MTB) is a bicycle designed for off-road cycling.
Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes.
