A hybrid is a good choice to accommodate the wide range of riding conditions you find in an urban environment both city streets and recreational trails. But within the category called hybrid bikes there has come to be a further differentiation: comfort and fitness hybrid bikes. If you are in the market for a new hybrid bike, it helps to understand the different features that are found with comfort and fitness styles so you can determine which is best for you.
