Olympian and former professional cyclist Lucy Martin shares her advice on choosing the perfect road bike for women.
Nearly every manufacturer has a full range of women’s specific road bikes now, so, if you’re looking for a new bike, you might be left thinking that a women’s specific road bike is the only option for women. Well, you’d be wrong. Although the component choices also differ and are also intended to be better suited to women, what’s essential is choosing a bike that fits YOU. This might mean getting a women’s road bike, getting a men’s road, or getting a men’s bike and switching over a few of the components like the saddle and the handlebars.
