The weight reduction brings benefits in every moment of the race. It is logical to think that the lower the weight of the bike, the lower is the force that opposes the motion during a climb. Less intuitive, but equally important, is the fact that a lower weight leads to a lower inertia and therefore less energy required to accelerate or decelerate the bike. Vintage road bicycles, also known as classic lightweight bicycles, are generally older bicycles with frames which are manufactured using steel tubing and lugs. Certain examples of this bicycle type have become collectors' items, with potential values of several thousand dollars. Other cyclists prefer this type of bicycle to those manufactured using modern techniques because they are practical, versatile, durable, repairable, and timeless, regardless of current popular trends.
