Our Range Of Road Bikes For Sale
Road bikes are designed purely for on-road use - they are fast, lightweight and efficient. Great for general fitness training, as a social activity (they’ve been called ‘the new golf’), or more serious events and racing.
Entry level bikes feature alloy frames and simple gearing (or groupsets). Generally these bikes as more comfort focused, and keep prices low by using more basic componentry for gears, brakes and wheels.
Moving through the range, bikes become more performance focused, with materials and components becoming more lightweight, durable and easy to use. Riders who get the bug can often begin to feel as though they are 'outgrowing' their bikes, and start to crave lighter frames, smoother shifting, better braking and improved handling.
Carbon frames achieve a big advance in performance, as the material is extremely strong, light, and stiff. It also provides greater comfort (through vibration dampening), as well power transfer (and therefore efficiency) compared to an alloy frame. The less flex there is laterally in the frame as a rider pedals mean less power is lost from each pedal stroke, and more in transfer into creating forward motion through the crank and wheels. Performance focused bikes aim to give the rider a bike that is laterally stiff, while allowing for some flex (or compliance) vertically as a way absorb some of the bumps in the road before they reach the rider. Obviously a more comfortable ride is not only more enjoyable, but improves performance and means a longer time can be spent out on the road riding.
