Before you start!
We think you should take a little time to decide
what bicycle is right for you. So first things
first...1. What will you be using the bike for?
Going to work - You should consider a it's a good choice for both comfort and
functionality. Hybrids require less effort to cycle on the road than a mountain bike and with
option of full length mudguards and chainguards, offer improved protection from the
elements. The Hybrid features a larger wheel than the mountain bike (28in) and so offers
better comfort and speed on the road.
Fitness - The best choice for a
fitness bike is probably a without mudguards etc.
While offering good comrort levels the Hybrid will also enable you to cover a bit of distance
and thus keep you more interested in your training. If you live in the country and think you
may want to go off road on some tracks
is really your only choice, or if
you want to see how fast you can cover a
distance and stay out of the wind then a is
your best choice.
