MOUNTAIN - HYBRID - ROAD - WHICH IS THE BEST BIKE FOR ME?
Very often, people looking to purchase a new bicycle, perhaps after not owning one for many years, are not aware of the many types of bikes that can be bought today. Road bikes with drop handlebars, mountain bikes, old fashioned 1 speed cruisers, and children's bikes are what many expect to see. But instead, bike shops carry many bike styles unfamiliar to them: hybrids, not just one hybrid but 3 different hybrids- one for road, dirt, and rail trails, also mountain bikes with 26, 27, and 29 inch wheels, adventure bikes, comfort bikes, cyclocross bikes, fat bikes, gravel bikes, and more!
Hybrids are the best selling type of bicycle in the USA. A hybrid is simply a bike built around a 700CM (approx 29") wheel, and a medium width high-pressure tire. Overall a hybrid is a versatile bike that can be ridden on pavement and dirt.
Types of Hybrids
There are 3 types of Hybrids: Fitness-Comfort-Light Offroad.
A Fitness hybrid is a road version, lightweight and fast with flat handlebars to put the rider in an effecient position for good climbing and power. Great for street rides, training, commuting, workouts, and rail trails. A very popular type, both Trek and Cannondale's best selling single model is from this category.
Another type of hybrid is the "Comfort" bike. This version has a wider seat that is mounted on a shock absorbing seatpost, and the handlebars are set higher than usual allowing the rider to sit more upright on a comfortable seat. This is a fun and casual type of bike, easy to balance and easy to pedal.
Because of our area's fine Rail Trails like the Ghost Town trail and the Great Allegeny Passage, Comfort hybrids are very popular bikes for City Cycle and we always have many models and sizes in stock, ready to ride.
Mountain Bikes Including 29'er Mountain Bikes
The Mountain Bike is a great choice because the area we live in is criss-crossed with State Game Lands, logging trails, dirt roads, abandoned farm roads and most people can ride off road within minutes from their doorstep. Mountain Bikes are stable and have a wide gearing range with excellent brakes, making them a fun bike to own. Now buyers can purchase a new 29" wheel size mountain bike. 29'ers are quickly becoming dominant because the bigger wheel rolls over bumps and obstacles more easily and more effeciently.
