Need a new commuter? Here are some things to think about: #cycling #bikecommute

The road bike is named after what it is designed for: riding on smooth, paved surfaces found on streets and different paved bike trails. Common features of this style are narrow bike tires, a lightweight frame, and a decent range of gears to choose from when climbing hills or speeding through downtown. Given a set of curved handlebars you have the option of riding more upright or in a position leaning towards the fork. While dropping in is optimal for transferring power from your legs into the bike and works wonderfully on a stretch of open road, being upright will allow you to gauge your surroundings a little easier if you're making frequent stops. Much like cars, road bikes have their subtypes that have been modified for long-distance riding with heavy loads, those made for speed and handling, and several that fall in-between.
