Carbon fiber frames are actively developed for developing carbon fiber frames as the material of the next generation of bicycle frames, and are currently being developed with carbon fiber frames, hardness, shock absorption, light intensity, and strength. The carbon fiber bike models require a premium, differentiated design concept, which is essential to the development of a conceptual and differentiated design, requiring the development of essential structural structures, safety and refinement, and more of their own identity. In this study, a personal and unified image was derived from the research of the needs of consumers and image analysis process and then in the practical design work, the road bike bicycle frame design was proposed targeting the frame on the basis of carbon fiber materials.
