Greetings from singapore. New guy here currently riding a Jamis Trail X3 hardtail, but on the verge of changing to a hybrid, probably a Jamis Allegro 1 or 2.
The question i have is that why do some/ most hybrids have lesser gears than their mountain bike counterparts? Everything on the allegro seems good (including weight), except for the number of gears. Is this because a hybrid is way lighter, hence it can do away with the lower gears? Sorry if i sound stupid, but any help is much appreciated, thanks!
