Bicycle Tricks & Repair : How to Buy a Hybrid Bike


Now I’m going to talk about How to buy a Hybrid.
There’s two different styles of Hybrid’s out, there’s this which is a comfort hybrid, it’s
a little bit heavier, it’s got easier gearing, suspension forks, big cushy seat, this is
definitely, more for the weekend warier, the person that’s going on bike paths, dirt roads,
stuff like that. When you’re looking at hybrid’s you want to look for a 700C wheel, but not
a road bike narrow tire, you want a thirty eight inch or wider tire on the front that’s
going to give you a softer ride. This is the other style hybrid, it’s a more road friendly
hybrid, this is something most people use for commuting. It’s got the same size 700C
wheels, twenty one speeds, it’s a little faster, lighter weight, and you can put racks, pin
your bags and more accessories on something like this. Both of these hybrids also, come
with adjustable stems on them, which is a nice feature because you can kind of custom
fit the frame, and the length of the reach you have, from the arms to the seat, to right
where you want to be.
