The £2,000 price point is an excellent starting point for a high quality road bike, and at this budget - cyclists will have a great choice of bikes, which use the best components and parts to provide excellent performance. All of the road bikes available around the £2,000 price point all use carbon fibre frames - the use of carbon fibre provides a lighter performing, stiffer and more comfortable riding experience compared to alloy frames.
The advantages of using a carbon fibre road bike continue, with lateral and torsional stiffness meaning that more pedalling power is transferred through to the wheels, and not lost in the frame. Carbon fibre, when used in areas such as seat stays, also provides increased comfort levels - over alloy frames.
There are two main types of road bike to choose from at this price point, race bias aggressive road bikes designed for maximum speed and pace, alongside endurance road bikes which are more designed for touring and covering maximum distances - with a more comfortable geometry.
At this price point, the frame will outperform components on the bike - so it’s a great price point to purchase at, if you plan on upgrading components on the bike, around an excellent and industry leading frame.
