ROAD BIKES FOR BEGINNERS

What to Look For

Consider the makeup of the frame. Road bikes can be found with different frame materials. Steel is the cheapest frame material, but aluminum offers a lighter frame. Consider your riding goals and habits. If you cruise around the neighborhood, the steel-framed bike may be your most economical choice. If you’re logging long miles, lighter aluminum frames may be better.
The best cheap road bikes include models of Trek, Schwinn, Tomasso, and Raleigh. [Read more…]
