1. Revolution Sabre
Another fine choice if you’re looking to get started with a road bike, the Sabre ‘14 is lightweight, features Tektro dual pivot brakes and a Shimano A070 Tourney 2x7 Dual Control gear shifter. The wheels are easily removable thanks to a quick release switch and the seat has been specially designed to be more comfy on longer rides.
2. Cervelo R3 105 Silver
Boasting Shimano R500 wheels, a Shimano 105 groupset and that classic frame design from the older Cervelo models, the R3 is an impressive road bike. Cervelo claims that its unique frame design adds stiffness, that’s because it’s built around Squoval tubing, making it smaller and flatter. It weighs about 900g, which is great for the price-point.
3. B’TWin Triban Black 500 SE
Coming in at under £400, this bike is a great choice if you’re picking up a road bike for the first time, or are looking to save a little cash. For your outlay you’ll bag yourself a perfectly capable bike with an alloy frame and carbon forks, Microshift gear shifters and a lifetime warranty for the frame, stem and handlebar.
