    Buyers Guide

    Whether you are buying your first road bike, or like us, you're hooked and you want to upgrade your ride, this is a quick guide to steer you through the occasionally confusing world of road cycling and arm you with the right information to make the best buying decisions. For a far more detailed guide, go to our BLOG on finding the best road bike for you.

    Where to start

    Prices for a bike that will last and give you a proper riding experience start around £500, which includes bike set-up, your first service and a quality bike fit. You can spend less, but you'll either get sub-standard components or be left on your own to build up the bike, determine how to fit it correctly to protect your knees, back, hands and shoulders, and service it once it beds in.  

    What are you paying for?

    £500 - £5,000 is quite a range, so how do you decide what's right for you?  For example, is it more important to spend extra to get a carbon fibre frame or would you be better off with a less expensive frame and better gear shifters, brakes and wheels?  If it's an upgrade from your current bike you are looking for, how do you choose the best frame, groupset and wheels for you? 

    1. Your cycling objectives

    The best place to start is understanding what you want to achieve with your bike. Do you want a comfortable bike that's good for fitness training, but you're not concerned with speed or the latest technology?  Or, are you interested in the sport, joining a club, doing challenging rides for speed and/or distance?  Your budget and the type of bike you select should be guided by your objectives, and this guide should help you make more informed choices.

    2. Frame materials

    The frame is the heart of your new road bike. It's where the majority of the budget goes. Frames can be made from a range of materials, and the most common are steel, aluminium, titanium and carbon fibre. Each is a very worthy material in its own right.

    Aluminium is the most common frame material for bikes costing under £1,000. It's an easy material to make bikes from, which keeps the cost down, and it's a very good material for road bikes, as it's stiff and light.  Carbon fibre is the fastest growing segment. however, carbon frames are NOT all equal. If it's a quality frame, you can obtain a magical combination of stiffness, comfort and low weight.  If it's poor quality, you're just riding a plastic bike.

    3. Bike sizing: Bike Fit is more than just choosing the right size frame!

    Choosing the right size bike is absolutely critical when buying a road bike, but it's just a starting point. We don't simply rely upon brand's sizing charts. We will size you up by putting bikes on a turbo trainer in the store to ensure we source the right frame size for you. Bike sizes vary by manufacturer, and the right size for you will differ based on factors, such as your ratio of leg length to torso length and the objective of the bike design (racing or endurance).

    4. Groupset Components

    The groupset comprises, essentially, the moving parts on your bike apart from the wheels, so it's your gears, shifters, chain, crankset, bottom bracket and brakes. The quality of these components makes a great difference in the reliability of shifting, effort to brake and comfort for your hands. There are three major manufacturers that you're likely to encounter: Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo. Shimano has, by some margin, the greatest market share. The pecking order for Shimano goes like this, from entry-level to top-end; 2300, Sora, Tiagra, 105, Ultegra and Dura-Ace. Pay more and you'll get a higher performance, lower weight, or both. 

    4. The wheels make the bike

    The next important area of your new bicycle is the wheels. Aside from the frame, the wheels will heavily influence how the bike rides, feels and responds. Lighter wheels will ride faster with less rotating mass. Lighter and faster tyres will feel more responsive and supple over the road surface.

    Summary

    We are here to help you match you with the best bike for your riding objectives and budget. We'll make sure you get the right size and set it up correctly for you in any case, but we can also discuss the trade-offs and pro & cons of your different choices. We are all cyclists and enthusiasts, so we are keen and able to help.
