Bond Strain

In a bond strain, what causes the bond to not be at an ideal angle?

The structure of the bond causes it to not be an ideal angle. For example, if you are working with a cyclopropane, the angle can not be the ideal 109.5 degrees because the structure of the molecule must form an equilateral triangle, which has angles of 60 degrees.
