How to Choose the Best Style of Road Bike for You
What Type of Road Bike Should I Buy?
Whether you are commuting from A to B, touring, fitness training or simply popping out to see friends, getting out on the open road on two wheels can be exhilarating and, done often enough, the sense of freedom can even become a bit addictive. However, with so many different styles of road bike to choose from, selecting the right type and model to suit your lifestyle can leave you feeling confused. Here we give you an overview of the different types of road bike available and what kind of riding they are best suited to.

ROAD BIKE FRAME SIZE
Ensuring you find the right frame size for you is really important to making sure your time on the bike is comfortable and fun. You’ll feel stretched and have less control if the bike is too big, and cramped on a bike that is too small. The geometry of the road bike will vary between sizes and across different brands too, so take time to research the different options and get the right bike fit. We do have size guides for each manufacturer, but the best way to find the right bike fit is to try one for size in store. Plus, we can make adjustments to the handlebar and saddle height and position to modify the reach to fit you perfectly.
