Top Ten Road Bike Brands

Which bikes deliver the best combination of performance, handling, speed, etc.

The Top Ten

1 Giant Giant Giant Manufacturing Co. Ltd. is a Taiwanese bicycle manufacturer that is recognized as the world's largest bicycle manufacturer.

I own a Giant Defy advanced 2 (2012 version) with full ultegra and I cannot fault the bike.
Rides, accelerates and handles like bikes costing twice as much. It's a bike that you can easily
Ride all day, so comfortable and smooth just irons out the road in front of you.

Hands down, the most for your money! Giant is OUTSTANDING for ride and technology. Maestro Suspension, OverDrive 2... Did I mention PRICE?!

All the GIANT bikes are really nice, the price of the bike is cheaper of what you take! Really try a GIANT and you will loved!

Just got into cycling. I did a little research before going to the bike shop, but once I road a giant the game was over. Great bike. For a beginner like myself it was affordable, light, and offers everything you need. It was comparable in price to cannondale and others but was superior. I expect to get many miles out of the bike. It is just awesome.

2 Specialized Specialized Specialized Bicycle Components, Inc., more commonly known simply as Specialized, is a major American brand of bicycles and related products.

Just bought this custom bike used for $300 from $900. Amazing quality this is my forever bike!

Great Bikes at a great value

I own a 2013 Venge Comp, have put well over 5,000 miles on it - a perfect balance between power and comfort and those are two difficult things to balance in a race bike.

I ride one and love every aspect of it

3 Cannondale Cannondale The Cannondale Bicycle Corporation, is an American division of Canadian conglomerate Dorel Industries that supplies bicycles.

I own a 2013 System six with Ultegra components. It has been a very good bicycle, comfortable ride, fast acceleration. I have now bought me the new System Six with Dura Ace, disk brakes
Aero style bicycle, and it has A very comfortable ride, it is fast. Fast acceleration

I have a Synapse carbon with Tiagra and that that it was a fine bike and very comfortable. The save system does work in smoothing out the road harshness. I recently brought the SystemSix ultegra model.. And this bike albeit being the one with the lowest spec in the SystemSix line, is very fast and nimble. Cannondales are truly the Bentleys of bikes..

I went from a Specialized city to my 2014 Synapse 105 disk alloy and am convinced that it is the best and most comfortable bike I have ever had. By far the best fit and finish of any alloy. I am on the verge of turning 62 and have never enjoyed riding more then now on my Cannondale. Now my Harley just sits in the garage...

I love my 2011 Cannondale cad 10, I got the bike, joined a cycling team, and raced for a season and even completed my first century. Now I have just joined 15 and starting my second season, my coach says that this year I could be one of the best in the state. Thank you Cannondale!

4 Trek Trek Trek Bicycle Corporation is a major bicycle and cycling product manufacturer and distributor under brand names Trek, Electra Bicycle Company, Gary Fisher, Bontrager, Diamant Bikes, Villiger Bikes and until 2008, LeMond Racing Cycles and Klein.

GREAT BIKE! I have a duel sport and absolutely love it. Its that go anywhere do anything bike we had as kids.

I like this brand

You can't get wrong with Trek, especially with high end carbon bikes. Love them. Have Madone 7. Domane is wonderful endurance bike.

I have a trek 1.1 and I absolutely love it! It's amazingly light for an aluminum frame it's comfortable on long rides while being a stiff enough frame not to flex when I stand and really dig into the pedals. ( 6 ft 2, and 215 lbs) I paid $769 brand new and this bike rides like some I've tried that were 3 times its price. I love this bike so much I just bought a trek 3500 mountain bike as well to have as my off road bike

5 Felt

Verza speed 50, light, easy driving, smooth changes.

Great features for the price, and good liking bikes too. It's impressive that Felt bikes won 4 stages in the 2013 Tour, and like all the top brands, the R&D trickles down to the lower-priced bikes.

Felt makes bikes of the top quality and often sales them much cheaper than the competition. It does not make economic sense but makes a lot of sense to ride the bike. I have mine endurance road bike and it's a horse for life.

Their AR line is arguably the best looking bike on the road. It's nice that the performance matches the look

6 Pinarello

So soft bike... dream it...

Amazing bike! I've been riding a Pinarello FP for 2 years now and I see no signs of stress on the bike, or the need for an upgrade. It's comfort, lightweight and the is awesome too!

I have a 2004 Prince. I have other bikes but this is the one that gets the most rides and miles. Fab bike.

Pinarello Galileo is my first road bike since I was 16 years old (a few years ago! )
I wouldn't change this for anything, well another Pinarello. Sweet ride comfortable smooth just makes me want to stay in the saddle longer ever ride.
Awesome Bike.

7 Cervelo

Best climbing bikes on the market hands down (R3). So lightweight it feels like you're riding on air!

If you want to ride? there is only one solution for you with Cervelo!

Great bike with great feel.

These bikes are fast and light weight

8 Fuji

Great value. Innovative engineering.

I think Fuji is a very great brand. They make good bikes, they handle great, and they are very cheap for a very great brand like that. I think they are a lot better than most brands.

I think Fuji do some very good bikes, and considering their price bracket being quite affordable across their range, I thin they should be included.

Been looking at a lot of bike brands based on price, looks and history. Fuji is the best dollar you can bet in terms of quality, performance, price and a good history behind it. It is also one of the best looking bikes around

9 Bianchi

Bianchi has been making road bikes for the longest time as I can remember. I grew up looking at magazines for their bikes, dreaming of one day being able to own one, and cruise around on a proper Italian bike. Bianchi has been making the same great bikes, with the same, hand-crafted quality for 133 years now. Their bikes are made in Italy and designed by people who have an eye for design, innovation, and craftsmanship. Bianchi is number one in the world, and forever, number one in my heart.

The oldest Road bike company still in existence so it must be one of the best. For people who know bike brands other than giant and trek they would agree Bianchi should be in the top ten at least.

I love my Bianchi!

Oldest. Most Innovative. King.

10 Scott Scott

Very good all round road bikes

This is easy ride bike for road, great for climbs. Roadba few bikes before choosing Scott sc1 20. Only thing is I personally liked to be stretched out more.

FOIL 10 AND ADDICT TEAM ISSUE ARE VERY NICE AND CHEEPER THAN OTHER BRAND.

Scott is the best, I buy specialized tarmac but after few months the specialized frame has a crack from the head tube. So I decided to buy a new frame and I bought scott foil and now my scott foil is 2 years and it has very good condition. Salute to the scott bicycles

The Contenders

11 Cervello

It's written on the side of your very expensive bike and yet you still spelled it wrong.

I have an S2 for almost a year now. The ride is excellent and smooth and It's a head turner on the road.

I'm 12 and I'm a keen cyclist. I brought the cervelo s5 road bike and it changed my life in road cycling

The P4 and the P5 are the 2 fastest bikes on the planet; so, by default, cervelo wins.

12 De Rosa

Dope ass gets much attention but costs like 25 k

One of the most beautiful bike ever built

i previously owned a steel bottechia, I really regret selling it just looking for her nice tubing was a bless
Viva Italian bikes

13 Koga
14 Merida

Merida 4000 is the best bike

My best merida scultura 4000..5 star

I have one merida the ride lite 93 2013 model, it's very valuable

I have warrior 500 and its good for mountain terrain

15 Raleigh

Hands down one of the best road bikes you can get. Excellent balance and overall road performance.

I have a 1983 Raleigh Zenith - still goes like the clappers 33 years later

Very good bike make

I brought a Raleigh Revino 3.0 this year and love it! This bike is very comfortable to ride long distances. I rode 165 miles on a one day bike ride with out any problems.

Awesome bikes

Thas incredibly is a great brand

Awesome modern designs from one of the oldest manufactures. Superb lines unmatched by the usual ho hum of the mass production builders - the ride matches any competitor - unique and value for money.

Best finish, excellent shock absorption with minimal flex in carbon range, balanced and extremely stable and unique designs

19 Wilier

My Cento 10 Air is amazing. Fast, light, feels great and looks amazing. Super responsive and always wants to go.

I have a Wilier Le Roi In in team Lampre colours 2008 with Campagnolo Record titanium and carbon group set.
Amazing build and stunning colours plus amazing to ride!

I own a 2014 gtr. This bike is so much bang for the buck. Super light for an intermediate level bike, responsive and wilier design is one of a kind.

I have a wilier road bike I through it off my triple story house and it didn't brake.

20 Polygon

I have helios road bike, and I think its very good bike, good quality with reasonable price

Polygon bikes may not be the stiffest or lightest bikes on the planet, but they're still top notch, and they often come in an incredibly competitive prices. Many of their range-topping models come with all the top-tier spec (Dura-Ace Di2, etc) at a fraction of other companies'.

Own a heist 2.0 2015 edition and loving every moment with it!

I have c20 for endurance is really awesome!

21 Cube

Simple, robust and precision-made bicycles. German quality, reasonable price and nice painting job.

Good quality for an affordable price

22 BMC

Well, you will see in Tour de France, at the front group. I have a Team machine SLR02, nothing to describe, just amazing

I just got a team machine slr02, best bike in its price range, by far!

Team machine is the best for the best price

Belongs in the top 5 of this list.

23 Scattante
24 Lapierre

Affordable price with high performance

25 Colnago

Design, build quality and ride quality all are assumed without discussion. It is the intangible quality of a hand built Italian beauty that makes these bikes so amazing. I've ridden many different road bikes and nothing is quite like a lugged carbon Colnago frame. If you will only have one bike in your life, make it a Colnago. The best!

I have a master, it is incredible when I ride it everywhere. Somehow, I dare not to ride outside when it is raining.

Colnago obviously makes the best bike in the world. The c60. Why it's so far down on the list is beyond me.

Holy grail in cycling, doesn't get any better, worth every cent!

26 Ridley

Rigid bike but very fast

Very nice clean looking bike. Maybe a bit stiff, but seems very fast.

Great looking bikes but you pay a premium price. Very stiff and fast. You feel every rock and pebble but you will probably win the race.

Good, genuin, all round quality. the brand has a good cyclo cross section but caters to other styles as well.

27 Trinx

I love Trinx

Dbest and affordable

28 Eddy Merckx

Brilliant bike for the price

31 Schwinn

My first bad choice corvette 2

32 Avanti

Really nice bike, smooth and confortable.

33 Motobecane

Motobecane, Immortal Force, is an awesome bicycle. Mainly it's affordable for an all carbon fiber bicycle, lightweight, and very strong.

Only brand that offers not only a complete line, but also road bikes in steel, aluminum, carbon fiber, and titanium

Getting one today looks amazing, 15lbs full carbon fiber only $900

Reasonably priced and good quality

37 Jamis

Jamis Ventura Comp is an excellent endurance road bike at a great price.

Love their touring bikes... Steel!

38 Norco

Don't own one yet, but shopping online, I can't believe this bike isn't rated much higher. Great price/value for some very high end components. Haven't seen a bad review yet.

Just bought one - steel frame feels good, well built. Bought at discount as end of season, but price:equipment is good.

It is a really good brand I have a few and they have all lasted for a very long time

I just road a Revolver which is listed as their XC Race bike at the Santos Fat Tire Festival. I had a little trouble finding a dealer but I was able ordered one not that far away from where I live. I ride a Niner which I love also but it's getting old and it's time for an upgrade. I've looked at several other bikes and for something with similar components I would of paid almost 2k more for it. I loved riding the demo bike and I can't wait to get my new one when it comes in.

39 Basso

Italian Frame passion

40 Argon

I am on my third Argon 18. I started on a E80 tt bike that my local bike shop recommended after testing riding plenty of others. And it just seemed to fit and fly better than any of the others. I sold it after a couple of years ears and upgraded to the E112 TT bike and it is even better for me. Wow. What a great bike. Fast and comfortable. Great bike. Then recently I purchased their track bike frameset "the electron" and built it up and that too is an amazing bike. What can I say they fit and work for me best. Why ruin a good thing.

41 Mongoose

If you buy a Walmart bike, expect problems. I have an old Mongoose Mountain bike, from a bike shop. It's a top line bike. Never a problem. I don't think they make them anymore.

Mongoose is one of the worst bike brands out there. Mine broke on the first month of using one.

42 Kestrel

Founded in 1986 Kestrel Produced the first fully carbon frame bike (not tubes with lugs). Then in the late 1980's they developed a carbon fork that was sought after by many racers. The Kestrel 4000 was their finest frame. in my opinion.

A standard bike is 11 pounds.

I love mine... won a sprint tri with it.

43 Tommaso

The carbon bikes of the past few years are excellent frames and top line components at amazing value. You have to get it adjusted at a bike shop (order online) but that only affirms how good the bike is as my bike shop marvels at the bike, particularly when I tell them the price. I am not a pro, but I after a Trek Madone with top components, this one has the same components and equally good frame for more than half the price.

44 Firefox
45 Ideal Bikes

Value for money!

46 KHS

Very nice finishing and light to ride.

47 Devinci

Sono interessato alla Spartan 2019, sembra essere un gran bel mezzo.

Little known high quality bike brand made in Canada.
The company scraps a frame that is more than 2mils off the standard. They really take pride in building light quality racing bikes.

I've had a 98 Devinci since it came out of the factory. Still in good shape. Components comparable to my friends' bikes that are recent and above average quality.

Very impressed with the quality, not regret for sure. I had a Trek before but, I'm sold to Devinci now.

48 Silverback

Must be top ten

I have a Silverback Strela 3 and must say I am impressed with the power transfer thanks to the frame stiffness. It is relative inexpensive and good performer bike.

I thick its very good one I like it

I am a beginner and I have a Silverback Strela sport and I am loving every mile/Kilometre I am on the bike, well price value for money in my opinion
