Ah, the road bike…… with the wind whistling in your ears as you fly down the hill. This bike was built for speed, baby! A lot has changed since Ace brought in those first French 10 speed road bikes to B.C. in the 60’s. The road bikes are now are lighter, with improved braking and integrated easier shifting. Your ride will be smooth, responsive and fast.
Whether you’re preparing for a charity ride or just riding for fun and fitness, our Performance road bikes balances speed, agility, and value. The carbon frame and fork are designed to give you the snappy acceleration and precision you need on your longer rides. Equipped with fast wheels and the large gear range you get with a 10 (plus) speed cassette, you can summit even the hardest climbs of the Tour de France.
You don’t have to be a road warrior to enjoy a road bike. With this style of ride your adventures will be fun, efficient and fast. This relaxed style of road bike with its slightly taller head tube places you in a more upright position to relieve muscle fatigue and ease tension on your lower back and neck . The longer wheelbase soaks up road vibration while adding stability and fluidity for greater control and comfort.
Cyclocross bicycles are a special type of road bike designed to be ridden on mixed surfaces such as pavement, unpaved trails, dirt, gravel and grass. They have a drop handlebar like regular road bikes, but the tires are a littler wider for more off-road traction. They are equipped with disc brakes that help to prevent mud buildup in the frame. Cyclocross bikes make good commuter bikes, because of the versatility, durability, and in most cases, the ability to carry light loads. These bikes are relatively lightweight, yet tough enough to handle extreme conditions. You’ve got yourself a VERY smooth riding bike with one of these.
