THE YEAR'S BEST AND MOST EXCITING BIKES - ROAD

Bicycling's annual Bike Awards are the culmination of a year's worth of realworld ride testing of hundreds of bikes. We rode them as you would-commuting on city streets, in the bikepark, up tough climbs, deep in the woods, or just out for a spin after a busy day. In selecting our top 40, we evaluated each bike's performance, its value, and how it stacks up against similar models in its category. We thought hard about each bike and whether it was one we'd want for ourselves before recommending it. If you're searching for a new road, mountain, gravel, or commuter bike-or just dreaming-one of these will be right for you.
