What are the hottest Hybrids out there now?

I used to try to keep on top of these, there was the FX9, the Specialized cirrus comp elite, etc.

What are the top of the line Hybrids now, thanks?

As far as Iím concerned, I would suggest the Cannondale Quick bikes. They are light, comfortable, and have the gearing that you can keep up with the casual road bike guys on the road yet can still ride the trails. I would tend to discribe them more as ďflat bar road bikesĒ. I changed the tires on mine to some 25c sport tires, but other then that itís unchanged.

I should note I have a ďrealĒ road bike when I go ride with my Sons friends in a local bike club

Really great quality,even in the typically forgotten details. Even the cheapest bike has shimano hubs.

But I tend to think those qualify more as flat road bikes with the 30 mm tires. Not sure if they can have wider tires, though.

Well I guess I have to eat my words. Canyon did finally reply to one of my emails..... here it is.


Thank you for your email. We apologize for the delay in our response time.

Although we are all Canyon, we are actually different entities with different markets, inventory and legal regulations. For that reason Canyon US is only able to ship their specific inventory within the US and Canyon Europe is only able to ship their inventory within their designated countries as well.

We do plan to carry a more expansive lineup as we grow here in the US, but do not have an ETA at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Feel free to give us a call if you have any more questions. Our phone hours are Monday through Friday 7am-5pm Pacific time at 1-833-226-9661.

Thanks for reaching out and your interest in our brand.

All the best,

Elyse

Service Center | Canyon Bicycles USA Inc.

So for the time being if you live in the US you are out of luck trying to purchase a Canyon flat bar road/rec bike.

I've got an older version of this bike, but I'm kind of frugal so this is my choice:

2017 Sirrus Sport or 2018 Trek FX2?

Joined the forum today and Iím happy to introduce myself. Lifelong Alaskan with a history of non-technical and casual trail riding. Nowadays is to have fun with my 7 year-old daughter more than anything. But I want to start riding to work. Bought a road bike once and it scared the hell out of me so that didnít last long. Anyway, Iím in Portland, OR for a work conference and I want to purchase a hybrid before I return north on Sunday where the options and prices have a laughable inverse relationship. My in-store and online (thanks everyone for this forum!) research lands me on the Trek FX2 or 3 or the Sirrus Sport. Budget is under $800. My riding will be on mostly paved roads with intermittent plow truck gravel-throw. An average of 8 miles per day, down our steep bluff on the way to work and then the slog back up at daysí end. The return is a significant extended incline so hill comfort and efficiency is a main consideration for me. Here in PDX today there is a 2017 Sirrus Sport for $750 out the door. My size is built and ready to go and the color very much to my liking. Iíve only window-shopped the Trek as the store was closed when I stopped by. I love the look of the Sirrus, less-so the Trek from what I could see online. Other than hill-handling of course is quality and value at their comparative price-points (I believe the Trek is a bit more but I also think itís the 2018 model). Thoughts if you would please? I fly home tomorrow and need to make my move. Thanks all. Happy to be part of the group and have access to your wisdom.
