New hybrid?

Postby Bjlong » Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:04 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm needing a new hybrid and want to get something decent for around the 500-600 mark. Can anyone please give me any recommendations? I was looking at the giant roam 3 but not too sure.

Thanks!

What sort of riding is it for? Even in hybrid models there are significant differences, ranging from fatter tyres and suspension for comfort to skinny tyres and light weight for speed.

Are you replacing an old hybrid, or looking for a brand new first hybrid?

Suspension on hybrids won't soak up many pathway bumps and will add weight, would you mind a rigid fork instead?
