Road bikes are designed for speed therefore, positioning rider closer to the pedals. Also road bikes have bent handle bars so the rider hunches over making it more strenuous on the back, but in return gets power from the legs. Most road bikes are made from titanium to that remain lighter in weight. Road bike tires are very thin and smooth. The skill of the rider is needed to maintain friction between the road and the bike. On a road bike you can choose whether or not you want suspension. Suspension will make the ride more comfortable. Road bikes can have lots more accessories such as grinding pegs, horns, and mirrors. This type bike is the all around bike for just riding around with friends. When choosing a road bike, just know what type of bike you want, and what you are going to use it for.
