Road Bikes

Road Bike

A road (or racing) bike is, just like the name suggests, designed to go on the road or on a racing track.

A road bike is characterized by a number of variables, starting with the frame. The frame's geometry lends itself to the rider's body being fully extended when their butt is on the saddle and their hands are on the drops (defined further down). Furthermore, the frame is light, to assist with sprinting (a high power to weight ratio) and hill climbing (lower weight) and rigid (to minimize power loss through flexion). To this end, serious road bike frames are made from carbon fiber.
