Abstract

Modal analysis of bicycles was carried out to find their dynamic behavior and the influence of rider and boundary conditions on the modal parameters of road bikes. Out-of-plane motion analysis and in-plane analysis were performed to identify the modes of the bicycle. The analyses were performed in the free-free condition and with the bicycle standing stationary on the floor with a rider. The dynamic behavior of bicycle was found to increase with the interaction of rider.
