    Road Bikes

    If you had to define in a single word what a road bike is all about that word would simply be “speed”, their narrow tyres offering minimal rolling resistance and stiff framesets enable efficient pedalling with minimal loss of power. We here at Scotby Cycles are proud to stock a range of fantastic road bikes from many of the likes of Specialized, Cannondale and Trek – three of the most innovative bike manufactures but also ones with some of the most prestigious racing pedigree.

    Models under £1000 price mark such as the popular Cannondale SYNAPSE Alu and Specialized ALLEZ are often based around a value for money aluminium frameset and utilise componentry which would have been featured on elite racing bikes a few years earlier and overtime has been proven to reliably work day in day out. Perfect for beginners, sporty commuters and training bikes.

    Bikes over the £1,000 threshold are often based around a carbon fibre frameset, one of the advantages of carbon typically has over aluminium is that it’s very lightweight and incredibly stiff meaning that a powerful rider can transfer the maximum amount of power through the pedals into drive with minimal loss of energy through frame flex – perfect for racing and endurance. Bikes over this price range often feature more premium components such as Shimano 105 or Ultegra group sets as well as lighter fast rolling wheelsets.

    We offer interest free finance available on models over £400 (excl. sale bikes) and we accept Cycle Scheme vouchers too. Delivery on all bikes is free of charge within mainland UK and bikes ordered in store quality for a complimentary six-week safety check.
