The road bicycle is designed for performance and longer rides. Proper fitting is very important to ensure comfort and safety. The road bike is defined by its 700c wheels with narrow 23c-28c tires and drop handlebars.
The rider position tends to lean forward more than a hybrid or flat-bar road bike. The position creates a more aerodynamic profile. The drop handlebar allow for a greater variety of hand positions which allow for optimal positions for either climbing, sprinting, or pacing.
The flat-bar road bike is a new category to emerge in the last several years. Flat-bar road bikes have become a popular bike for commuting. The tires are narrow compared to a hybrid but slightly larger compared to a standard road bike. The geometry is more performance driven. The handlebar is usually straight or has a slight rise. The flat-bar road bike has braze-ons to install rack and fenders and overall it is designed to be very quick bike for commuting or recreational.
