The key thing to think about when choosing your road bike is how you plan to use it – is it for fitness or performance?

WANT TO GET FIT? OR ARE YOU JUST GETTING INTO ROAD CYCLING?

Go for a bike that’s shaped to give you a more comfortable position – a flat handlebar will do this and make the bike easier to handle. An aluminium frame is a good idea because it will be lighter and more efficient. Carbon forks also help make bikes lighter.

IS YOUR PRIORITY PERFORMANCE?

You need a frame that is light and efficient no matter how hilly the terrain is. From flat ground to mountains, a performance road bike won’t slow down, and teamed with an aluminium or carbon frame, won’t hinder comfort.
