List Rules Only road bikes brands; no mountain bikes or cruisers.

In the last decade, road bikes have exploded in popularity as people have discovered that it's not as embarrassing as it once was to slip on the spandex. This is a list of the top road bike brands for amateur and professional cyclists alike, ranked by quality and reliability. Whether you are only interested in hitting the hills on weekends or training for 100 mile races, these are the best brands of road bike on the market. Not just any old bicycle will work for a serious ride. These good road bike brands are what you'll really need. Perfect for the serious cyclist who needs a bike to take out on paved roads, many road bikes have narrow frames made of aluminum or carbon fiber. Similar to racing bikes, the top road bikes usually use derailleur gears, though there are single-speed and fixed-gear (sometimes called "fixie") models as well.
