Hybrid bikes are a mix between a Mountain and Road/Racer. Why would you need a bike that is a mix of a mountain bike and road racer? Well the large wheels make it more efficient then a mountain bike and the wider tyre rims make it stronger then a racer. With this bike you get the best of both worlds.
The hybrid bike has more of a mountain bike frame and has the gears and seat for luxury rides. These hybrid bikes are ideal for those longer rides on on paved roads. The suspension makes those long distance rides a lot more comfortable.
