What is a Road Bike?

Terrain: Road/Cyclepath

Road bikes frames are usually carbon, aluminium, steel, or titanium, with a flat/sloping top-tube, shorter seatpost, rigid forks which, on more expensive Road Bikes forks are made from carbon, aluminium, or steel - together these are called a frameset, for use with drop handlebars. Wheels are lighter, and have fewer spokes with shallow or deep rims, and typically slim/narrow width rims ranging between 700 x 19–28mm for aerodynamics, and a smoother ride. 25mm was designed for Road Race Bikes, 28-30mm are used for Endurance Road Bikes. Road Bike tyres have a smooth appearance to minimise rolling resistance and run pressures 70-120 psi – although each tyre brand will come with its own recommended tyre pressure (this can be found on the sidewall of the bike tyre).

All Road Bike components and gears are compact to help you pedal at speed. Higher end bikes will be fitted with Shimano/SRAM 11, 12, or Campagnolo 13 Speed Components, more affordable Road Bikes will have 8, 9, or 10 Speed.

Are you a Rim Brake or Disc Brake rider?

Road Bikes use either rim brakes - which makes a higher-end road bike more affordable; mechanical disc brakes used on a mid-price range Road Bike, or top of the range Road Bikes brakes are hydraulic disc brakes that grab disc rotors mounted to the hubs – these have the best stopping power, and less maintenance (usually requiring a Brake Bleed every 8-12 months) and are a superior braking system to mechanical disc brakes, or rim brakes in dry and wet conditions.
