Not a road bike, or a mountain bike, something in between. This versatile category can be split into two different styles – hybrid comfort/sport, and flat bar road. Hybrid comfort/sport bikes feature a relaxed, upright seating position, with some models offering suspension forks. These are both most commonly used for fitness and general commuting. Flat bar road bikes are similar to the traditional drop bar road bike, with flat handle bars providing a more upright seating position, and improved handling at low speeds. They also feature wider tires, making them more suitable for going off curbs and gutters.
