Cycling on footpaths & on roads
Hybrid Bike Riverside 500 9 Speed Disc Brake
Many would ask, what is the difference between a hybrid, a road bike and a mountain bike?
HYBRID VS ROAD BIKE
Hybrid bikes are designed for casual and comfortable riding, thus the rider will be in a relaxed and upright riding position. Road bikes have a relatively longer top tube and reach compared to hybrids, which helps lengthen the rider and help them stay more aerodynamic.
HYBRID VS MOUNTAIN BIKE
A hybrid bike is equally suitable for easy terrain as for asphalt and getting around town. An MTB, on the other hand, is the unbeaten champion for action-packed trails, mountains and gnarly downhills.
In conclusion, a hybrid is exactly what it sounds like – a mix of a road bike and a mountain bike. The result is a bicycle that’s suitable for general-purpose riding over various types of terrain. For starters, riding a hybrid bike is no less in any way than riding a road or a mountain bike.
