Hybrid bicycles, as the name suggests is a cross between a Road Bicycle and a Mountain Bicycle (MTB) which offers the best of both worlds. Hybrids have become immensely popular in recent years for their exceptional comfort and riding capabilities on both slightly rough and smooth roads. Hybrids came along when MTBs started getting more specialized and updated for more challenging conditions. They typically offer an upright riding position, more than any other modern Bicycle style which is achieved by the raised handlebars. Plus with the thinner frame and a wider seat, they are more aerodynamic on roads than MTBs but not as aero and fast as a Road Bicycle.
