I have all early 90's XT on my winter bike. It has held up very well for many years, but I am able to keep it pretty clean because I can spray it off every day before I bring it into my heated workshop. When it gets slushy and cold your transmission won't work at all, and you have to hope that in froze solid in a gear you can use. For my next winter bike I will seriously consider single speed or IGH. If you are going for cheap I would still get the MTB over the hybrid. Save some money for studded tires and poagies. You'll be glad you did.
