    I think we can call the Orbea a hybrid though with disc brakes and XT.

    I agree in part but...the Orbea has discs which means it can swap to 26 inch wheels and MTB's can have rigid forks. My Hybrid has discs (hence easily swapped from 700 to 26 inch) and a rigid fork on an MTB frame. Most definitely a hybrid.

    I love this one....but they need to find a way to get rid of the chain tensioner.

    Looks like Specialized has done a really nice redesign (to my mind) on the '13 Crosstrails:

    http://bicyclesportshop.wordpress.co...ed-crosstrail/

    Much better looking frame/geometry; the top two (Comp/Pro) get a frame material upgrade. The Pro in particular tempts me: X0/9 drivetrain; Magura brakes. Throw a decent lightweight set of 29er wheels on it, and ...! I like the fact that they've turned away from "29er light" just a little, and oriented the model more toward the classic, light Euro-style "cross" (not to be confused with "cyclocross") bike.

    That looks like somebody took a picture in a rush and isn't an official one - look at the saddle and all those spacers above and below the stem
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Nothing pretties up a bike like trekking bars. Mine:


    They don't all have to be flat bar road bikes. To me, the major limiting factor in most hybrids' appearance is a cheap crankset.

    How many "features" from either ends (pure mountain bike and pure road bike) it has to have to be a "hybrid?" What I notice is that a lot of bike manufacturers have dropped the hybrid designator and are simply calling these as multi-use, street, or fitness bikes. For example, the Specialized sirrus used to be listed along the road bikes but for 2012, Specialized has introduced a whole new class called multi-use. But I do agree that the Orbea and the Sirrus limited are essentially road bike frames with a flat bar. The Sirrus limited shares the same frame as the Roubaix SL2.

    I think "hybrid" is correctly applied as a very broad term. Anything not purely a road bike, or purely a mountain bike, that falls somewhere in between, I will call a hybrid. Flat bar road bikes fall under this designation, so do the new dual sport/multi-use bikes. Frame geometry is the major differentiation that is less obvious. My Trek 7.2 FX apparently can be described as a "light touring" geometry, with longer chainstays and slightly more upright seating than a "flat bar road bike" would have.

    In my mind, a road bike has a lower BB, longer head tube, a more horizontal, shorter top tube, and shorter wheel base. A mountain bike has a higher BB, shorter head tube for more clearance between down tube and front tire, longer, sloping top tube, and a longer wheel base.

    A "true" hybrid might have some of both. In the case of a flat bar road bike, you might have a longer top tube and shorter stem to work with a flat bar, but then also the lower BB and shorter wheel base.

    To me, my own KHS Alite 1000 isn't really a "true" hybrid because it's still MTB geometry, despite me adding smoother road tires, rigid fork, and a shorter stem. It's still got that high BB, sloping top tube, and massive clearance between front tire and down tube that I don't really care for.
