Spring into summer with a speedy new bike, we pick six fast road bikes for your consideration

Warmer weather is finally boosting our motivation to get out and ride the bike free from the shackles of heavy winter clothing, and with it our concerns turn to riding fast and toppling some personal best times, setting a sportive target or lining up for a first road race. 

If you're in the market for a new road bike and speed is at the top of your list of requirements, we've picked six recently reviewed road bikes that are guaranteed to give you a nice speed boost. Okay, it's not about the bike, it's about the legs, but there's nothing wrong with giving yourself every advantage. 

- Why your next bike should be a road race bike

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.
