Before embarking on an intensive search for your road bike, it's important to ask yourself the right questions to make an initial selection.
WHAT IS YOUR BUDGET?
Knowing how much you want to spend on such a machine is important, especially since they come in all price ranges! This way, you can select bikes that fit within your budget.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU PLAN TO USE IT?
If you plan to train every day, opt for a high-performance and comfortable bike intended for experienced cyclists. If you plan to ride mainly on weekends or during vacations, go for a bike with a good value for money.
HOW MUCH DISTANCE DO YOU PLAN TO COVER WEEKLY/MONTHLY?
The more hours you spend on your saddle, the more important the comfort of your bike becomes. This parameter determines the choice of frame rigidity and a more or less comfortable saddle, according to your preferences.
WHAT TYPE OF TERRAIN DO YOU PLAN TO RIDE ON?
If you plan on riding hilly or mountainous routes, go for a versatile bike with a triple crankset. For a first purchase, an aluminum frame and a carbon fork make an excellent compromise between comfort and performance.
