    I don't get it. Some of the bikes look like MTBs with slicks on. If that's the case, then mine can be a hybrid too?

    Radagast the Beige-and-Black is a comfort hybrid. Can I play, too?
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    Flat bars are good for riding around the block and for shorter trips... when you spend 6-8 hours in the saddle you will want more hand positions.

    Last Monday I did 100 km into a stiff headwind and still averaged 25 kmh... I came off the bike feeling great and could not have done that without the extra hand positions drop bars provide.

    Several of my mtb's have road tyres, touring geometry, and drop bars and by definition are also hybrids since they utilize multiple technologies.

    From a marketing standpoint the term "hybrid" has a far narrower definition and most people associate hybrid with the types of bikes that have already been posted here.

    Wheel size is not a determining factor as many hybrids run 26 inch wheels... especially those described as being comfort bikes.

    You'll work up to it. Keep trying. You aren't a hybrid rider yet, but I appreciate your effort.

    Absolutely. Hybrids are flat bar road bikes and skinny tire mountain bikes. Even drop bars are allowed if the wheels are 26in.

    Let me skew the demographic here...

    My vintage Kuwahara mtb with road bars, road levers, road tyres, and a fixed drive.

    That's more like it. Drop bar fixed mtb ftw.

    If only to illustrate that the definition of a hybrid encompasses a very wide range of bikes...

    65'er - Trek isn't calling the carboniferous 7.9 FX a Hybrid anymore. They finally figured it out: Their warranty would drown 'em in debt when people went off-roading on the carbon 7.9.

    The 7.9 FX is now a road-bike.

    Wait a Boll-Weevil second - which Trek is that??
