A hybrid’s gearing is more similar to a road bike. They come with seven or eight speed drivetrain gearing, which is ideal for neighborhood jaunts, or 16 all the way up to 27 possible gear combinations which is helpful when carrying gear or traveling up hills. Hybrid bicycles have either two or three chain rings in the front as part of the crank assembly.
You love getting out there on your bike but not necessarily riding at warp speed or tearing up steep, wall-like hills. You have a ball exploring winding bike trails but aren’t keen on plunging headlong on to a skinny dirt trail riddled with boulders. No, you’re someone who just loves the simple joy of spinning through an easy-going ride for some quality time with your bike, enjoying an easy commute to work, or a fun cruise with friends to a riverside picnic hideaway.
Great exercise at your own pace calls for a hybrid bike spec’d for worry-free comfort and easy handling on neighborhood roads and bike paths. Today’s hybrid bicycles benefit from constant advances in engineering and frame construction, making them fast, responsive, and just plain fun to ride. They offer the perfect blend of comfort and performance, quality and style.
The best comfort hybrid bikes we’ve selected for this list are designed with heavy focus on comfort, with relaxed and upright riding positions, smooth-rolling wheels and tires, and suspension in the fork, seat post or sometimes both for absorbing any roadway irregularities. Most of our picks also include rack and fender mount options for additional functionality as well as to suit your personal style preferences.
The tires used on a hybrid bicycle are wider than those used on road bikes, but narrower than mountain bike tires. The suggested tire air pressure puts a hybrid bicycle in the same level as a road bike when it comes to inflation level. The advantage of this type of wheel and tire combination is that when riding on paved roads there is less rolling resistance making the bike easier to pedal and more efficient by reducing rolling resistance.
Stolen Men's dispatch 700C hybrid bicycle. It's a new bike used for just 3 weeks. The cable lock was cut and the theft stole it away. I'd like to pay $100 reward to the person who helps get it back.
