Drop bar road bikes are the “10 speeds” of the old days. These are traditional road bikes with narrow tires, offering multiple hand positions and great efficiency on paved surfaces. They are not intended for dirt or gravel.
Flat bar road bikes or “Fitness” bikes have a more upright riding position and have more tire clearance than a conventional road bike. Flat bar road bikes are usable on a wider range of surfaces than drop bar road bikes, such as gravel and light trail.
Time trail bikes are purpose built speed machines. They are the most efficient category of bicycle, but have a very aggressive riding position which may not be comfortable for every rider. Also, they are not great for group rides or urban settings since brake levers are not always close to your hands. Like road bikes, these are at home only on smooth pavement.
Cyclocross bikes are road bikes with lower gearing, wider tires, and frames built with more tire clearance. They are alright for pavement, but designed for light off road use.
As the name would suggest, touring bikes are road bikes that are designed to carry gear necessary for extended travel. Usually, touring bikes are equipped with the eyelets necessary for mounting front and rear racks, have plenty of clearance for fenders, and have a wide range of gearing to allow for slow climbing with additional cargo.
You guessed it, it’s a road bike with only one speed. Some folks like the simplicity, challenge, and low cost of single speed road bikes.
