Six reasons to choose an aluminium road bike this year

There's still life in aluminium, and there has never been a better time to buy an aluminium road bike, as these six bikes we've reviewed here at road.cc prove. Carbon might be flashier and titanium more desirable, but aluminium provides a stiff and comfortable ride and is often the best value proposition, ideal if you're on a budget and want the best bang for your buck. 

So sit back and hit play on the video above and watch as we present six fantastic aluminium road bikes from Mason, Kinesis, Cannondale, Condor, Bowman and Vitus

David has worked on the road.cc tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of Bikemagic.com and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
