Feeling the wind in your hair as you cycle through the countryside isn't the exclusive pleasure of fancy racers or English country misses anymore. Today, more than ever, bikes have come back as a true form of transportation, taking millions to work and home each day. The biggest reason for this, besides the price of gas, has to be the development of the hybrid bike.
While racing bikes are great for speedy trips – they aren't the most comfortable. On the other hand, touring bikes are comfortable but heavy and slow. The hybrid bike came from combining the best of each of these bikes to give commuters a comfortable speedy ride that could stand up to a little bashing along the way.
