Re: Should I buy a new hybrid bike ?

03 September, 2011 08:26AM
I've been using hybrid-style bikes without suspension with 35 or 38 mm tires (1.5 inches) for over 25 years now; mainly on road, often on canal towpaths, occasional woodland paths and other unsealed paths, some trips up to 60 miles per day. At the price you mention it is unlikely that you will get really good quality suspension; probably better to get a slightly higher quality bike weighing around 12 to 13 Kg without suspension for your money, possibly with a suspension seatpost. Look around for local specialist bike shops (not Halfords), explain your needs, see what they suggest, see if you feel comfortable with the shop and the people there, possibly try out a few bikes.
