I've got an older Schwinn mountain bike (back when Schwinn was a good bike!). Currently, I'm running some multi-purpose tires (pavement and dirt road riding). I also have an older Bianchi Strada road bike too.
I am more comfortable with upright riding position of the mountain bike vs my road bike. Been thinking about buying a hybrid.
But just curious, what would be the advantage of buying a hybrid vs just putting different tires on my mountain bike, such as a good 26x 1 1/8" high pressure tire?
I live in the hilly Arkansas Ozarks, so low gearing is a must for me.
