Hybrid Bikes

Hybrid bikes are bikes that use the best features of other styles of bike to create something that is more suitable to your lifestyle and riding style. They are suitable for all types of rider and all age groups, from experienced cyclists who put in long miles on a regular basis, to the leisure cyclist who values comfort and style over performance. At BikeExchange, the online marketplace for everything bike, we have hybrid bikes for sale suitable for this full spectrum of riders.

What you need to know about hybrid bikes

There isn't a single style of hybrid bike for sale at BikeExchange, or anywhere else. In fact there are loads of different styles, with each one aimed at a different user. This includes sports hybrids which are close in style to a road bike so are fast on the road, while still offering a comfortable ride. Another type is the terrain hybrid bike which is closer to a mountain bike in style so will be able to handle gravel and grass as well as road. Finally there are classic hybrid styles which are built for extra comfort.

Important facts about hybrid bikes

Usually hybrid bikes look like a mash-up of a mountain bike and a road bike. They are designed to be more robust and have a more comfortable riding position than a road bike, while also being faster on the road than a mountain bike. They achieve this through a couple of key design features:

  • They have flat bars like a mountain bike instead of drop bars that are on road bikes. This promotes a more upright and comfortable riding position.
  • They have wider tyres than road bikes, but not as wide and chunky as the tyres you find on a mountain bike

Advantages of hybrid bikes

Road bikes and mountain bikes are serious machines that are designed for specific uses - travelling at high speed on the road or hammering down a muddy hillside. They are used by those involved in racing and serious weekend enthusiasts, but that doesn't cover everyone. This is where hybrids are perfect.

  • Do you want to travel quickly and efficiently on the road but don't want the sore neck and poor visibility that comes with a road bike?
  • Do you want to occasionally go on a gravel path or across grass without worrying that something on your bike will break?
  • Do you want to enjoy cycling for the sake of cycling? If you answered yes to these questions, a hybrid bike is the bike for you.

Choosing a hybrid bike

The first thing to decide is whether you want a bike that leans towards off road capabilities, or one that’s mostly designed for use on the road. Then you have to decide on a brand. Look out for top names like Giant, Trek, Devinci Liv, and Jamis. Then make sure you get the best deal. At BikeExchange the listings are placed by a variety of sellers including individuals and bike shops. This means low prices and an extensive range to choose from.
