Road Bike Overview
If you want speed then a road bike is for you. They have a light frame, large wheels, 20 gears and are aero-dynamic. They also have a range of different pedals which heavily differ to the standard platform pedals found on most bicycles. The road bikes are the sort of bikes that you will find the Olympic athletes using, the seat and frame are made in a way that the rider has to lean forward which makes the whole bike aero-dynamic. Because of their light frame the road bikes are more fragile then your average bike, therefore they should only be ridden on flat surfaces. Road bikes are built for speed and efficiency.
