Hybrid bikes are bicycles that are a cross or hybrid between a mountain bike and a road bike. The bikes feature a mountain bike frame and gears, combined with 29" or 700C wheels. This gives the durability and gear range of a mountain bike, together with a large road bike wheel which is faster than a typical mountain bike wheel and tyre. These are favoured by recreational cyclists. The bikes look good, are comfortable to ride and are designed to get around town, to school or to work in style.
