The hybrid bicycle is a relatively new type of bike and is sometimes called a ‘Trekking’ bike. They are a combination or ‘hybrid’ of, mountain bikes, touring bikes and road bikes. Since they first appeared hybrids have split into Urban, Sport and Classic models:
1) Classic hybrids have a fairly upright/relaxed position, 700c wheels (road bike diameter) and usually come fitted with racks and mudguards as standard.
2) Sport hybrids again come with 700c wheels but tend to have a slightly sportier riding position and will often come with suspension forks.
3) Urban bikes are closer to mountain bikes in their geometries (riding position) and tend to have 26” wheels.
Biycle brakes in general have improved greatly in recent years with ‘V’ brakes being the norm.
