Shared bicycle has played an important role in improving urban traffic efficiency and promoting energy conservation and emission reduction. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the visual imagery of a variety of shared bicycle frames, by using the semantic difference Method (SD method), factor analysis method, factor renaming and triangular fuzzy numerical calculation, the author takes the top 12 market share bikes as samples; finally, it is concluded that there is something in common on the image evaluation of the bicycle frame with different shapes about simple and labor-saving, graceful and practical respects. While there are great differences in these images of vigor, modern technology and magnificent quality. It also shows that shared bicycles have similarities in modelling imagery, we take the use of shared bicycles in Hangzhou, China as an example. According to the urban landscapes, three cycling areas are set out. Bicycles with the good-quality, soft and elegant images were applied to cycling belt along the river; bicycle with simple and energy-saving, dynamic and novel ideals to cycling belt in mountain forest area; the ones with strong and modern technology to cycling belt in the urban community. At last, the result of the test is consistent with the hypothesis conclusion. The aim of this study is to distribute and use the shared bicycles rationally, and take full advantage of them, so that the government can optimize the allocation of resources and create a better public service system. At the same time, regional management of bicycles helps save human resources and maintenance costs. Thanks to the common characteristics of urban geomorphology, this research system can be piloted in major cities all around the world, and the concept of environmental sharing will be used in more countries and known to more people all over the world.
