The term road bicycle is used to describe bicycles built for traveling at speed on paved roads. Some sources use the term to mean racing bicycle. Other sources specifically exclude racing bicycles from the definition, using the term to mean a bicycle of a similar style but built more for endurance and less the fast bursts of speed desired in a racing bicycle; as such, they usually have more gear combinations and fewer hi-tech racing features. Certain of these bicycles have been referred to as 'sportive' bicycles to distinguish them from racing bicycles
Compared to other styles of bicycle, road bicycles share common features:
- The tyres are narrow, high-pressure, and smooth to decrease rolling resistence
- They usually use derailleur gears; however, single speed and fixed-gear varieties exist.
- The bicycle is of a lightweight construction.
