Hybrid bikes offer the best of both worlds, tarmac or trail. With features from Mountain Bikes and Road Bikes, with an upright and stable riding position. The hybrid design of bike is idea for fitness or urban riding, but still offers the toughest of a Mountain bike and yet the speed and lightness of a Road Bike. Another major plus to Hybrid Bikes is the gearing, which is suited to all types of rider, whether you want to gain some speed on the flat tarmac or just cruise on a canal tow path. Hybrids are an ideal purchase under the Ride2Work scheme.
Urban & Hybrid Bikes
The subtle differences between Urban bikes and Hybrids Bikes is if you are not going to use your bicycle on any trails or paths, an Urban Bike would be best with reduced weight, no suspension forks and a slightly slicker tyre. All this adds up to a faster and light bike. The plus to a Hybrid Bike is that if you are looking for an all-rounder a Hybrid is the bike for you, with the added comfort features.
