I guess I've always thought of the term hybrid (and most other bike genre terms) to apply to a spectrum of bike styles. Pretty much from what are now called flat bar road bikes to what are now called Niners. There are simply more descriptive subgenres today than there were back then. Heck, there are 5 different MTB subgenres now, not including the Niner descriptor. In 1992, there were just Mountain Bikes, no All Mountain, DH, XC, etc.
