Cycling started with the road bike. TPC’s used road bikes range from commuter models to classic racing bikes.
Aluminum and carbon road bikes are the standard, while the velvety ride of titanium road bikes still makes riders swoon. The Pro’s Closet offers you top road bike brands like Specialized, Trek, Cannondale, Giant, and more.
All road bikes are technically unisex, ranging from 48cm (fits 4’11” to 5’2”) to 60cm (fits 6’3” to 6’5”). Check our road bike sizing guide to take accurate measurements, pick the right size, and geek out on frame geometry.
Women’s road bikes are usually designed for shorter torsos and arms, smaller hands, and lighter bodies. Do women need bikes made just for them? Not necessarily. But is it worth considering? Absolutely. Check our women’s bike buyers guide for the deets.
Specialized road bikes sell out, always, and no one’s surprised. If you want a versatile option that won’t break the bank, start with the Specialized Allez. Or go in with a faster, dialed ride on the Specialized Roubaix or Specialized Tarmac, which range from weekend models to the top of the podium. The S-Works stamp of approval is reserved only for top of the line Specialized road bikes.
Trek road bikes are diverse, but every model reflects the brand’s homegrown American pride. The Trek Domane is the smoothest ride, built to quell vibration while giving you precise handling. Tackle climbs with the Trek Émonda, or if you’re looking for a pure speed machine? The Trek Madone is your answer.
In the world of Cannondale road bikes, “risky” is a compliment. The Cannondale Synapse is a brilliant all-rounder endurance frame, and on the performance end, the Cannondale SuperSix Evo has taken countless Grand Tour stages. Find the right aero road bike for you with our Cannondale Road Bike Guide.
