WHAT ARE ROAD BIKES?

Specifically designed for use on paved surfaces and roads, road bikes at Dolan Bikes come in a range of styles and prices. Whether you’re looking for a lightweight carbon frame or a durable titanium road bike, we’ve created a range to suit both your budget and your needs.

Traditionally, a road bike will have drop handlebars which allow the rider to position themselves lower and be more streamlined with the bike itself, providing a more aerodynamic performance on the road. Road bikes also come with unique narrow and high-pressure tyres that allow for a slick tread which reduces rolling resistance and provides a better grip for the rider.

THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ROAD BIKES

Road bikes come in all shapes and sizes:

Road Race Bikes

These bikes come with a lower riding position in order to decrease wind resistance and reduce the frontal area.

Endurance or Sportive Bikes

Featuring a taller frame, endurance bikes allow the rider to travel longer distances by reducing fatigue.

Touring Bikes

Built for practicality, these bikes feature a longer wheelbase as well as pannier mounting points.

Disc Brake Road Bike

These bikes come with the popular disc brake, which makes them easier to manoeuvre on the roads thanks to their powerful braking power.

All of these different bikes can be custom built with different materials (carbon, alloy or titanium).

HOW MUCH ARE ROAD BIKES

How much you spend on a road bike will depend on the type of bike you want, the materials used in its construction, and any additional add-on costs. A quality carbon road bike can cost upwards of £2,200 (or even £7,000 for some of our top of the range models with all extras added) whereas a titanium bike will cost around £2,000+.

This can change if you’re looking at entry-level models. Aluminium road bikes can cost around £1,000 while carbon-built entry-level bikes start from £1,400.
