As the name suggests, a hybrid bike blends different aspects of different bikes to create what can only be described as a biking best of both worlds. Second hand hybrid bikes incorporate elements of mountain bikes and elements of road bikes and create bikes that are incredibly versatile.
Used hybrid bikes are perfect for those that don't need to take a bike to the extremes - either in terms of terrain and conditions with mountain biking; or in terms of speed and mileage with road biking. Hybrid bikes are a practical and comfortable combination of the two.
Hybrid bikes give you an upright riding position. This not only gives you a great view of the road ahead, it also puts less strain on the back and neck when compared to conventional road bikes. What you gain here, you use slightly in aerodynamics as the drop racing handlebars of road bikes are replaced by straight handlebars.
There are a huge variety of second hand hybrid bikes to suit all tastes. So, you will find models that offer wider tyres and greater suspension that are best suited if your preferences tend to lean towards mountain biking as these features improve a bike's performance off-road. Similarly, for those more inclined to riding on roads, you can find hybrids that provide thinner tyres and a sportier, slightly more aggressive position to ride in.
Hybrids can be found with a range of wheel sizes. Generally speaking, larger wheels will roll faster, but smaller ones will feel more nimble in tight turns. Hybrids with bigger wheels roll quickly and easily on roads and smooth trails, but can still cope with being ridden off-road.
In terms of material construction, steel frames give you strength and durability, whereas a second hand hybrid bike with an aluminium frame produces a lighter bike and ride. Hybrid bikes already come with wider tyres than road bikes, but those models that feature a suspension fork will offer further comfort over rougher surfaces, such as trails.
Used hybrid bikes with disc brakes provide consistent braking in all conditions and ensure that the rims do not wear down. Derailleur gears are the most commonly found gear systems found on second hand hybrid bikes. Hub gears can be found on high-end machines. These cut down on maintenance and dirt, and most second hand hybrid bikes will either be fitted with, or have space for, mudguards and racks.
