Cannondale Bad Boy 29er vs Bianchi Camaleonte 4

I am trying to decide between these two hybrid bikes.

1) Cannondale Bad Boy 29er Hybrid 2015 Bike
Bad Boy 29er - BAD BOY - URBAN - FITNESS & URBAN - BIKES - 2015

2) Bianchi Camaleonte 4 2015 Bike
Bianchi - More than 125 years of history, international leadership

They are both in a similar price range but which one is the better hybrid bike? What are the important things to look out for?

I have no personal experience with either bike, but just a quick glance at your links shows these are completely different bikes. The Bianchi looks like an entry level flat bar road bike, with road components and fairly high road gearing, and relatively narrow tires. The Cannondale is more of a mountain bike modified for urban use, with mountain components , triple chainring and extremely low gearing, and huge 29 x 2" tires.

One isnt necessarily better then the other, but the riding experience will likely be very different.

No comparison, the Bad Boy is a far superior bike....which can be built very lightweight.

If you live in a place with bad roads, a 29er is better. Balloon tires just leave you feeling fresher after a ride.
