What exactly is a hybrid bike? Hybrid bikes use features from both Road bikes and Mountain bikes. They are comfortable and fast, the ideal cycle for commuting on roads, pleasure riding and occasional tow paths.
They offer a more upright riding position and allow you to see well in traffic instead of leaning forward on the likes of a racing bike or race mountain bike. The wheels on Hybrid Bikes are larger in diameter and are generally narrower than Mountain Bikes while keeping a good strength but allow less resistance on the road. This will aid commuting. Gears on Hybrid Bikes offer a wider range.
