Beyond the inherently aggressive features of road bikes, there is one thing that makes them different from other bikes: the drop bar. So what if that were the only thing that prevents you from committing to one, but all of the other advantages are still attractive? Then go for a Speeddrive, our "road bike with a straight bar". It is no way slower, and not at all less sporty. It's simply an all-rounder and we don't know what else would keep you from getting one.
