I am new to Hybrid biking and am completely in the dark.
My work takes part in a bike4work scheme in which the bikes which we can purchase are tax free.
A friend and I are looking to purchase a Hybrid bike each and have narrowed our selection down to five bikes.
We will be riding 30-40 miles once a week as well as our usual to and from work which is only 5 miles at a time, we was originally looking at purchasing road bikes but opted to go for the more versatile considering we could possibly be riding other terrain.
Anyways, narrowed down to 5 bikes:
Urban Studio 74 2013 Hybrid Bike
X2.3 2013 Hybrid Bike
Crosstrail Sport Disc
Crosstrail Sport Disc 2013 Hybrid Bike
QX75 2013 Hybrid Bike
These are all around the £500 mark as we are only beginners so do not intend to spend excessive amounts. Which of these bikes would you guys recommend for us based on the rides we will be doing?
If there are any other alternative (male) bikes on this website which would fit our criteria better please let me know.
Thank you in advance.
