Re: Road bikes?
To be honest I have no idea. I bought a three speed with skinny tires and a steel frame. I put an electric motor on it and rode it through the bike trail a couple of times and decided not to do it. I put bigger tires on it and converted it to a cruiser.
The bike was pretty unstable for me. I don't have a lot of balance and the road is pretty awful around here. The small pot holes and bumps in the pavement threw me all over the road.
I wise I could be more helpful.
