Hunting down the best road bike deals can be a long and laborious internet-trawling grind. With the closure of factories and rise in demand both coming as a result of COVID-19, the availability of road bikes is at an all-time low. Previously new deals would be appearing all the time, but nowadays discounts are particularly rare, and even when they are available, the available sizes are never what you need.
Luckily for you, the Cyclingnews team knows a thing or two about finding cycling deals, and we've managed to hunt down a few deals on road bikes so you don't have to. The availability problem has hit the USA market particularly hard of late, so the majority of our findings below are UK-focussed, but fear not, there are still a few deals for our USA readers.
And don't worry if you're not looking for road bikes, our bike deals roundup has a breakdown of all types of two-wheeled bargains including mountain bikes, gravel bikes, electric bikes and more.
Below, we have broken down our road bike deals by type: race, endurance and aero. We'll be keeping this regularly updated to remove sold-out deals and add new ones as they come online, so make sure you bookmark this page and keep coming back for fresh deals.
Road race bike deals
Race bikes are designed to go fast over all terrain. More often than not, a race bike is a lightweight combination of low weight, comfort, handling and aerodynamics. A racing bike's geometry will be aggressive enough to race, with a long reach and low stack to achieve an aerodynamic position, without being harsh or uncomfortable over long distances.

An endurance bike's geometry facilitates a more upright riding position, with slacker angles and plenty of built-in comfort-enhancing technology.

Aero road bike deals
