Choosing the Best Hybrid Bikes for Work Commutes and Exercise
As most of us know hybrid bikes are generally bikes with electric, which means you can easily switch from one to the other. When buying a hybrid bike you should look out for the ones that use disc brakes, these are more powerful than traditional rim ones and work much better in wet conditions. If you will be mainly road biking then opt for a road bike size wheel (700c) which will give you more speed on the road than a mountain bike. If you will be doing a combination of on road and off road then it is sensible to opt for 650b, or 29in, wheels which will be able to cope with a more uneven terrain and are a bit closer to mountain bike wheel size.
Hybrid bikes are great for going longer distances than you are used too. For example, going uphill to save tired legs and making a long distance to and from work when you really don’t feel like or can’t put in the miles physically.

Voucher Shares Top 5 Hybrid Bikes
We have based our recommendations on a combination of best on a budget and the hybrid bikes that incorporate the more traditional elements of road bikes and mountain bikes, usually with a horizontal handlebar so they are comfy for cycling to work and leisure riding rather than racing up and downhills or competing!
When considering which hybrid bike to buy for you consider what you will be using it for and do loads of research first. For example, if you will be riding on multiple terrains don’t get a road bike. That said, a hybrid is not going to offer you the same off-road capabilities as a pro mountain bike!
