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 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. derailleur gear are closely so that rider can at their cadence.

However, particular benefit the tubular-clincher is that risk of flats is low (like tubular tire), it allows use of more popular wheel. Racing
