The Flat Bar Road Bike Captures Just The Right Balance For Many People

Road bikes are ideal for speed and competition, whether it's a road race or triathlon. But did you know that there are actually more people using them as alternative or supplemental transportation or a form of exercise than anything else. It really is a great way to workout. But some people find them hard to ride because of the drop down handlebars. That is where the flat bar road bike comes in.

Today’s flat bar road bike
really is a type of bike that has evolved very recently in biking. There are a tremendous number of people in the world who enjoy a wide variety of biking, some say six billion. Many biking enthusiasts, even some designers and engineers have pushed for a development of sub categories of bikes for instance like the flat bar bike. This is due to the fact that the current bike models don’t always meet their needs.

Today there is quite a wide variety of bikes that basically fall into being road bikes with flat bars. They are designed to give you the speed you're looking for but with a more comfortable upright position which is what many people are looking for.

This type of bike is similar to a hybrid bike
in several ways. They both are a combination of a mountain bike and a road bike. Hybrid bikes really are more of a mountain bike than road, while the flat bar road bike is more of a road bike than a mountain.

This means that with its bigger tires you can ride the hybrid both on road and off. On the other hand the flat bar with its small tires is only meant to be ridden only on road. This means it misses out on some truly enjoyable rides in the minds of some bike lovers.

When new technologies are used to meet a craving for new adventures then new solutions are created like the flat bar. When people let a passion develop without letting barriers get in their way, brand new things are discovered.

These bikes utilize frames like the road bike
but with a slightly different geometry, built with the same light weight material aluminum or carbon fiber or a combination as the foundation of the bike. They use typical road bike tires 700 23c’s or similar. Then they put a mountain bike flat bar set of handlebars on it along with shifters and brakes to match the style of handlebar.

When manufactured by a top manufacturer they are designed for high performance and maximum reliability. They are fitted out with high quality Shimano components and designed to give the rider a top riding experience. They give the rider the advantage of a fast bike but with being able to ride sitting more upright. Many people see it as a perfect commuting bike.

For some people the real joy of the flat bar bike is
the more upright sitting position. They love riding the roads and they love going fast but their back just won’t handle the lower more forward riding position of the road bike.

To me there is plenty of room in this world for different ways of doing things. I mean we all not only think different but we are physically different and that means we need to have choices to meet our individual needs.

I think the flat bar road bike is a great alternative and captures just the right balance for many people.
