Advantages and disadvantages of the road bikes
The main advantage of the road bike is its speed. Made of the lightest material of all the bikes ever the top road bikes allow you to gain the highest speed. Their thin tire demands less frictions than the mountain bike. The riding position of the biker provides less wind resistance which leads to higher speed.
Unlike mountain bike, the road bike does not protect the biker from beating and does not guarantee comfort because of the light material. The thin tire of the road bike is made for the park and roads in town. As soon as you get into dirt or wet ground you will be stuck there and save your steel friend. Thus, you will not reach the necessary place in time.
Road bike or the mountain bike
In conclusion, we can say mountain and road bike has its pros and cons. All the technical questions may sound pretty difficult but in reality they do not demand much of your time but definitely help to choose the right and the best bike for you. Let’s take a fast look at both types of bike and the way of using them. If you like climbing and you spend much time out of town going through the dirty, loose soil you need a really powerful bike. Then it should be mountain bike. Its knobby tire sustains the abuse you may feel while climbing. At the same time such bike requires more power and frictions while pedaling. You will not get a really high speed with it.
The road bike in contrary is made of very light metals which allow you to exert less power and develop higher speed. Even the best road bike will not protect you from feeling every hummock and every hole on the road.
