Road Bikes, Road Bicycles, Racing Bikes
The term road bicycle is used to describe bicycles built for traveling at speed on paved roads. Some sources use the term to mean racing bicycle. Other sources specifically exclude racing bicycles from the definition, using the term to mean a bicycle of a similar style but built more for endurance and less the fast bursts of speed desired in a racing bicycle; as such, they usually have more gear combinations and fewer hi-tech racing features. Certain of these bicycles have been referred to as ‘sportive’ bicycles to distinguish them from racing bicycles.
We stock a wide range of road bikes in the two main styles – flat handlebars and curved handlebars. The flat handle bars are more comfortable to ride as they have a more upright stance. Bikes with the curved handlebars, or racing handlebars as they are also named, tend to be lighter, and with your body lower and therefore more aerodynamic these bikes are build for speed and distance.
