Hybrid/city bike

These are a cross-breed, designed for commuting, casual riding, and riding both on- and off-road. Because of their comfort and practicality, they are very popular among casual adult riders. Hybrid bikes, as their name suggests, are a hybrid of both mountain and road-style bikes:

  • large wheels (700cm);
  • medium sized tyres – bigger than a road bike, and often with a little bit of tread, but much less than a mountain bike;
  • tough mountain bike-style frame;
  • front suspension normally available as an optional extra;
  • comfortable riding position;
  • around 21 gears, at a relatively low gear ratio; similar to a mountain bike, although often not quite as low.
