Road Cycling Buying Guides

Buyers Guide: Road Bike Accessories

Simple accessories you can add to your road bike to improve your ride.

Whether you’ve got an even coming up and want to be prepared, or you just fancy giving your trusty steed a new lease of life, there are a range of accessories and parts available to add to your road bike.

From bar tape to saddle bags, there’s also a vast range of different price points to think about. Think about what you want the accessory to do as a guide; are you planning on racing a time trial, in which case light weight and aerodynamic accessories are key, or are you going for a long weekend ride for several hours where you’ll need a repair kit and some snacks.

If you are adding accessories, don’t forget you’ll need to remove most of them if you’re leaving the bike locked up for a period of time. You don’t want to come back in the morning to find your new saddle bag has left without you.
