Types of Road Bikes

What kind of riding will you most do?

  • Road racing -- Racing (Light, stiff, hairpin handling, high performance climbing)
  • Long distance riding -- Touring (Comfortable, strong, tons of gears, built to carry equipment)
  • Some long distance riding, some speed -- Sport (Between the racing and touring models: both comfort and performance)
  • Marathon speed racing -- Triathlon (Aerodynamic, ride practically parallel to the ground)
  • Off-road racing -- Cyclo-cross (Thicker tires, wide-angled frame, durable)
  • Closed-circuit speed racing -- Track (Single speed, light, stiff, aggressive angles on frame)
