A hybrid bike is often thought to offer the best of all worlds. These general purpose bikes are enormously popular and can be used over a variety of terrains including: road, mountain and off road.
The usual set up is to have flat handlebars like an MTB with the same gear shifters. The wheels are generally the same as road bikes; however there are some hybrids that are more like mountain bikes (equipped with smaller wheels).
Hybrid bikes are a popular choice for commuters who may want to opt for a little off road use at the weekends. The flat handlebar set up ensures a more upright riding position so there is some sacrifice of speed for general comfort and thus many people consider these a better choice for commuting to work.
Another form of hybrid cycle is one that has been built by the owner from "Components". We are happy to consider these for insurance.
