Unsure about what exactly is a hybrid bicycle?

Well it's kind of like a mongrel dog ... or a bitsa as we call them (a bit of this and a bit of that).

Essentially the hybrid bike is designed using features from three different styles of bicycles - the road bicycle, the mountain bike and a touring bicycle ... and this makes it a terrific allrounder kind of bicycle.

It steals its - upright seat position, frame geometry and handlebars - from the mountain bike.

It takes its - thin wheels and higher gears - from the road bicycle

And last but not least has copied the - adjustable handlebar stems, suspension seat posts, wider puncture resistant tyres, comfort oriented saddles and padded grips - of the more comfortable touring bicycle.

Sounds good huh? The best of all worlds ...
