Now we’re in the realm of road bike royalty when looking for the best road bikes under £2000. Seriously, with a budget of £2,000 we can start to see some very nice bikes show up on the market. We will be looking for a combination of top quality components, as well as lightweight designs. The main aim is to find a bike that will last you a long time and be a pleasure to ride. If you’re budget doesn’t stretch so far then please check out some of our other road bike lists, however for a good quality road bike you should consider spending as much as you possibly can initially, as many lower priced bikes will cost you more in the long run simply because you’ll be tempted to upgrade parts as time goes on.
With a budget of £2000 it’s possible to find a good road bike. A road bike that will hopefully last several years and need minimum maintenance due to its quality and design.
Lightweight road bikes will be our main focus with a budget of £2000. £2000 allows us to look at both aluminium and carbon composite bike frames. With an aluminium frame our road bikes will be much lighter than bicycles with a steel frame construction. A road bike sporting a carbon fibre frame will pack even less weight.
We only consider a bike whose price point offers great value for money, ride comfort, commuting potential and top performance when compared to other bikes within the £2000 groupset.
Mechanical disc brakes are something that £2000 allows us to consider. A wide range of disc brakes are available on road bikes. We'll be looking to add some options to our recommended road bike list that have disc brakes within our budget.
Carbon fibre isn’t a deal breaker at the £2000 budget. We want to choose the right disc brakes, carbon or aluminium frame and handlebars to make our cycling enjoyable all the time. Especially if you spend time long times riding on a range of different roads and race tracks. A comfortable ride and riding position are important as we do our best to stay within our price point range.
Balancing a road bikes value for money against its endurance and specialised design can make getting the road bikes specification a difficult job. You can expect the best road bikes under £2000 to provide a comfortable ride. This is because they’re lighter and more durable than the lower tier ‘cheap road bike’ bikes. You can also expect the best examples to come with an aluminium frame, front full carbon fork, possibly internal cable routing and excellent riding position.
After all the latest road bikes have been designed to ride quick while maintaining comfort regardless of speed.
Alloy wheels might become affordable with some of the best cheap road cycling options around our guide price. Steel is solid but isn’t as lightweight. Full carbon fibre would be the dream however might not match out price point.
Hopefully the list below will give you some indication of the best road bikes under £2000 on offer and what great value bikes you can get in your price bracket.
