Hybrids make great city bikes. We sell a lot of them around here because that's what people are doing around here, city biking. The medium size tires make them perfect for negotiating the rougher roads or the occasional shortcut across the grass; and most people find the upright riding position more comfortable. It's the perfect bike for riding through the neighborhood, going out with the kids, pedaling through the park, or going for a cup with your friends. We carry mens and women's models. (All prices include a kickstand and Intown water bottle.)
Raleigh Detour 3.5
This is our entry level hybrid. Although you can buy bikes for less money, it's hard to beat the Detour 3.5 for value. The frame is aluminum for light weight. The fork is rigid for a good road feel, and the shifting is intuitive with its grip shift. It really rides like a more expensive bike. We carry the mens and womens. Both are also available in silver.
Raleigh Route 4.0
The Route 4.0 sports an aluminum frame for light weight; has both a seat post and front wheel suspension to give it a very smooth, comfortable ride; and it uses "rapid fire" shifters for easy and precise gear shifting. The Route 4.0 is truely a joy to ride! Also available in graphite.
Jamis Citizen 2.0
The Citizen 2.0 is the first Jamis hybrid in our lineup. It's similar to the Raleighs above except that it has a slightly different fit and slightly different feel to the ride. The Citizen comes with a front suspension, and a suspension seat post to give it a soft, plush ride. It also uses twist-grip shifters for intuitive, precise shifting. The Citizen 2.0 is a really good riding bike! Also available in blue.
Jamis Commuter 2
The Commuter 2 is one of our favorite bikes. It's the one we always take on the coffee run. It's sort of the modern version of the classic English Racers from back in the day. It sports 7 speeds to make it easy to pedal. It comes with a luggage rack for your briefcase, parcels, or for adding a basket. Fenders give it a nice, finished look and, of course, keep mud off your back. Having said all that, however, we like the Commuter 2 most of all because it's just plain cool! Also available in black, as well as a step-thru (ladies) version.
Here's a brand new bike from Electra. It's best described as a fast hybrid. The ride is light, fast, and smooth, the fit, quite comfortable. You lean over just a tad on it, but not too much. The Verse is a nice cross between a flat bar road bike and a traditional hybrid. We thought enough of it to add to our line-up. Come see what you think. Also available in a ladies and in burgundy/champaigne.
Raleigh Misceo Trail 1.0
Here's a bike we added to our lineup last year. You could call it a hybrid, or you could call it a mountain bike, but either way, it makes a great, rugged, urban bike. It has a more narrow tire than a typical mountain bike, so it's a little faster on the street, yet it's still wide enough for taking off road. We think of it as an urban mountain bike. If you like the toughness or style of a mountain bike, but ride mainly on the street, this would be a good bike for you.
Raleigh Mesika Trail 1.0
The Mesika is the women's version of the Misceo above, only it's a little smaller, and it fits a woman better with it's shorter reach to the bars. It makes a good street bike with the narrower tires, but makes a good off-road if you want to hit the occasional dirt road or take it camping. If you like the toughness or style of a mountain bike, but do a lot of street riding, this would be a good bike for you.
