Well, I obtained a nice road bike from my sister in law a few years ago, because she had gone to a bike shop that only wanted to sell her a road bike. They said it was the "best" bike. It never got ridden by her and just hung in the garage for years. I think people that want road bikes usually know that is the kind of bike they want. I have several road bikes as well as others. They are good at different things. I use my hybridized MTB for commuting and utility, I use the road bike when I just want to hammer and go fast (or what passes for "fast" with me).
