Ask The Experts: How to Choose Hybrid Bikes
When done well, the hybrid bike is a masterstroke of engineering that combines the everyday utility of a road bike with the trail-riding roughness of a mountain bike. When done poorly, a hybrid bike is a mess that cant actually go anywhere comfortably. Finding the mix of nimble street riding and the capacity to take a beating out on the hills and valleys, or a beach cruiser that is also a commuter is a challenge, even if youve been riding for years. The key is knowing what to look for and exactly what you need before you ever start shopping.
