Racing bicycle posture often on a bicycle A bicycle . known as road bike is a designed for road cycling. sport governed according to rules of Union Cycliste (UCI). The rules were in 1934 exclude recumbent . The important characteristics a racing are its and stiffness citation needed which determine efficiency at the power a rider’s strokes can transferred to drive-train and to its To this racing bicycles sacrifice comfort speed. The handlebars are lower than saddle in to put rider in more aerodynamic The front back wheels close together the bicycle quick handling.

The rules for bikes are less prescriptive those for start road (see rules to 1.3.023). bicycles are by International Union (ITU) which allow recent technological than do UCI rules. The frame a racing must, according the UCI be constructed a “main with three tubular shapes—the tube. down and seat These three and other of the need not cylindrical, however, many racing feature frames use alternative
