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 and Cannondale.

Models under £1,000 price mark such as the popular Cannondale Synapse Alu and Specialized Allez are often based on a value for money aluminium frameset and utilise componentry which would have been featured on elite racing bikes a few years earlier and over time 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 groupsets as well as light fast rolling wheelsets.
