Abstract: This paper is an educational design course project on the modification of a bicycle frame and engineering components to enhance mobility and reduce effort while cyclic. The project was simulated with computer aided software which includes material selection and structural modification, which is an important element of design. The brushless DC motor is assembled over the back wheel as propellant. The correlative material/application processes and materials selection are briefly discussed in this study.
Keywords: Electric bike, Material selection.

Scope of the Article:
Assemblage and System
