    Which hybrid ?

    I want to buy a good quality, well spec’d hybrid bike for general leisure. I want flat handlebars, a rigid front fork, a wide range of gears and would also like sufficient tyre clearance for wide tyres (~45mm or greater). Which bikes have these features ?

    5ft 1” child - hybrid bike to buy?

    Hi, My daughter is only 10 and 5’ 1” tall. Still too short for a Ribble adult bike. Does anyone have a recommendation for a ‘large’ child’s bike - hybrid type? Say £300 budget. Many thanks, Martin

    Will a Hybrid Bike slow me down?

    I currently have a Giant Defy road bike and I can peddle for miles and go quite fast on it. However, I'm riding it on a long cycle path and the surface is pitted which makes for an uncomfortable ride at times. I can put up with this but I'm not sure it will do a road bike any good riding on this...

    Kildemoes Logic hybrid saved from scrap

    On my usual sortie around the charity shops of Sheffield I saw a charity worker loading scrap metal into a van ready to take to the tip. Amongst the 'scrap' was a hybrid bike with an ally frame and hub gears. I shouted that he surely wasn't scrapping it and he replied "help yourself mate, it...

    Budget cycling shoes for hybrid biking

    I'm going on a 4-day cycling holiday and am looking for some budget cycling shoes (no more than £40). I don't clip in, so don't actually need this functionality, but I assume all such shoes have this anyway? Requirements are: Dry reasonably quickly - I've used my normal trainers in the past...

    Surprised my hybrid disc bike has same width rear end as road bike.

    When I say width I am referring to the distance between mounting points. I was measuring the width of my hybrid rear end in readyness for getting a rack. I was surprised that it is about the same as my Triban road bike. In fact the rear end of the Triban is a bit wider by 18mm. I see racks...

    Would a Hybrid bike be suitable for riding in the woods?

    Commuting & Fitness - Hybrid or Cross/Gravel?

    I plan to start commuting to work very shortly and have figured out a route that's around 11 miles each way and a combination of tarmac and gravel paths. I plan to start on my existing bike (Ridgeback Speed) but given I am eligible for a new one on the C2W Scheme I'll probably take advantage of...

    Hybrid Bar Width

    The bars on my Ridgeback Speed are too narrow (600mm) for me and I'd like wider ones but am not sure whether going to 700 would be too wide and I'd be better trying 680mm. I use the bike for just general knocking about and occasional commuting so it's to enhance comfort rather than performance...

    From Hybrid to Road.

    Happy Sunday to all. When I bought my hybrid I was too excited and didn’t do proper research backed up by bad advice from LBS even after telling them I was going to do over 90% roads. Thinner tyres and suspension corrected forks helped but still not happy, I was pining for a road bike. So I...

    Converting a flat bar hybrid to a drop bar tourer

    When I did Lejog a few years ago I popped some butterfly bars on my (aluminium) Ridgeback, and it was a straightforward relocation of the brakes and shifters. I found, however, that I didn't use much of the bar, so it was just ballast. I put the flat bar back on when I got home. Now, I'd like...
