Typically, road bikes are fast and light, and designed to be ridden on paved roads. It usually has drop-bar handlebars (although some have a flat bar like a mountain bike) and skinny 700c rims. Generally speaking, road bikes are made from steel, aluminum, titanium or carbon fiber (or a combination of these).

Make sure the bike you buy fits you properly before you buy it. The sizes of bikes are based on your height and inseam length at the very basic level. If your bike has a complementary straight top tube parallel to the ground, you might need about one inch of clearance from the top tube when you are straddling it. When choosing a bicycle, you should consider several factors, including how you intend to use it (for recreation, competition or commuting) and your budget, which will determine the quality of the components.
