Road Bikes

The main elements to consider for choosing a road bike are:
– The lightness. Over the frame is lighter, it will be nice to ride (mostly uphill).
– The frame. It can be steel, aluminum, carbon or titanium. Prefer aluminum and carbon, materials both light and strong. However, if you are not planning major sports outlets, do not bother to invest in carbon (more expensive than aluminum or steel).
– The pedal. Both brands share almost the whole market: Shimano (Japanese brand) and Campagnolo (Italian brand). They are very reliable.

What size?
For a bike route for hiking, good frame height corresponds to the size of your crotch, multiplied by 0.67. For a bike for the competition, the right frame height is given by the formula: 0.65 x inseam.
It is best to seek the advice of a specialist, who will “place” you on the bike.
