    Best looking hybrid you have seen

    What is the best looking hybrid you have seen? Post the details and describe it or preferably post pics! I was having a discussion with a co worker who said all hybrids are ugly and I want to give him some good reading/viewing material. I know many of you have awesome bikes or have seen awesome ones.

    I haven't been too crazy about the looks of most hybrids.

    Hi zenmaster.
    Many people simply believe what they want to believe, especially when it comes to hybrids, so your coworker might simply stick to his ideas.

    Anyway ... I build my own hybrid from scratch to be exactly what I wanted, so obviously it's what I consider to be the nicest hybrid in the world:



    JBChybridrider's bike is also completely custom and really nice be it more on the "performance" side of hybrids where mine is more on the "do-it-all" side.
    You'll find many pictures in the pictures thread and such.

    That Orbea Diem S20 is one sweet looking bike. Too bad its way out of my price range.

    ^^^ ummm... double-you tee eff mate?

    Sure single-sided forks/arms are kinda cool and all, sorta Ducati-ish. But why have no rear seat stay at all? Those rear members look massively heavy.

    modern monarkhyb&#1.jpg

    This bike might be 7-8 years old. Turned up on swedish CL 3 years ago. NOS. My size. Hard to come by. I wasnt fast enough to grab it. It would have had its natural place amongst my other Monark┤s.

    I think my baby is just as beautiful today as the day I first met her. Even if she has changed her handlebarstyle and what she wears over the years.

    For me, it doesn't get any better than this. No details but I think the owner may post here.

    Currently riding a 2013 Handsome Devil custom build and an 80's Takara Highlander (MTB built in the style of an 82-84 Stumpjumper).
