Hybrids - Comfort
Town and Country Bikes
The term 'hybrid' is a really lazy term that everyone in the bike world uses, but one that has lost all specificity. Unfortunately, it seems to have stuck. It was first coined to describe a cross between a tradtional utility type road bike and the newer mountain style bike. But such has been the proliferation of bike styles in recent years that the term now serves little purpose - 'hybrid' of what? you may well ask. These days, you can buy a cross between all manner of types, with all manner of gears, wheel and tyre sizes. If it means anything, it means versatile - these bikes can do a number of things well. Here, we have settled on a simple distinction between 'Comfort' and 'Sporty.' Set out below, are the more upright types that we offer.
