HYBRIDS, or COMMUTER bikes are designed to take strains of everyday riding, through rain, hail, sleet or snow! To carry loads (lunch, laptop, change of clothes, dog, child etc.)
Built tough, because they have to be! Reliability is key here. If you are an occasional commuter, fair weather cyclist, a comfort bike could well fit your needs. (Check out Comfort Bikes section) These are lower priced, designed for less usage, stresses and less durable parts and can be between $400-$600.
