Hybrids are good, casual, "I just want to go biking" kind of bikes. They have a comfortable upright riding position, medium size tires (for the occasional shortcut across the grass), and a comfortable seat.
These days there are more hybrids and variations thereof from which to choose than ever before; but all are good for riding around the neighborhood, going to the park, or making the occasional run to the market.
Scroll down to see what we carry. It's a pretty good sampling of what's out there to choose from. We carry men's and women's models. (All prices include a kickstand and Intown water bottle.)
This is the first hybrid in our lineup this year. We found the Cameo irresistible: a beautiful, classic, get-around-town bicycle. The upright riding position makes it comfortable. The luggage rack is practical. The fenders give the bike a nice finished look. Seven gears make it easy to pedal, and easy to operate. What's not to like?
If you like the Cameo above, you'll love the Spirit. It's basically the same bike except that it has an aluminum frame. The light, nimble ride nicely compliments the good looks.
Raleigh Detour 2
Although you can buy bikes for less money, it's hard to beat the Detour 2 for value. The frame is aluminum for light weight. The fork is rigid for a good road feel, and the shifting is precise with its "Rapid Fire" shifts. It really rides like a more expensive bike. We carry the men's and women's. Both are also available in red.
Jamis Citizen 2.0
For a little more money the Citizen 2.0 comes with a front suspension and a suspension seat post which lend the bike a very smooth ride. The shifting is crisp with Shimano "Rapid Fire" shifters, and like all the Jamis bikes, the Citizen is light and responsive. This is a nice bike. Also available in Azurite Blue.
The Verse 21 (One Men's XL Left)
$535 (On Sale for $435)
The Verse is our fastest hybrid. It's a cross between a flat bar road bike and a traditional hybrid. The ride is light and fast like a flat bar road bike, but the riding position is more upright, like a hybrid. This is a good bike if you want something casual, but with a little zip ( and a little flash).
We recently added the Electra Lofts to our lineup. We like the light, nimble ride, the simplicity of seven gears, and, of course, the classic styling. Come ride this bike. You'll love it. It will look good on you. We carry the men's and women's 7D model, as well as the women's 7i, which is the internally geared 7 speed. The men's 7D is also available in white, the women's in yellow.
Loft 7i $710
Jamis Commuter 2
Ride this bike to work, take it to the market, or just ride it for fun. The rack and fenders are very practical, but we admit, we like them simlpy because of the classic, finished look they give the bike. The riding position is slightly leaned over. It's got eight easy to pedal gears and style to boot. You should come see this bike. We carry the men's and women's models. The women's model is also available in red.
Raleigh Misceo Trail 1.0
The Misceo is a street/trail bike with hybrid size tires, but on the knobby side. We think of it as an urban mountain bike. It's nimble on the street, yet able to go off road. If you like the toughness or style of a mountain bike, you ride mainly on the street, but want the option to go off road, 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 fits a woman better with it's shorter top tube and shorter reach to the bars. The Mesika makes a great urban bike with it's narrower tires, but makes a good off-road bike for the occasional foray off pavement. The Mesika's tough, but in a feminine kind of way. Why a Women's Bike?
