Hybrid and Comfort Bikes
Hybrid Bicycles
were originally conceived to provide the advantages of both road bikes and mountain bikes. Their large, padded seats and upright handlebars provide a comfortable riding position, and are best for casual riding around the neighborhood or bike paths, short-distance commuting, and errands around town.

They can be ridden on paved roads, but are not as lightweight or efficient as road bikes. They are ideal for paved or unpaved bike trails, but are not appropriate for rough off-road mountain bike trails.

The tires are usually a medium-width with a semi-smooth tread, to provide a fairly smooth ride on pavement, but enough grip and cushion on unpaved trails.

Most hybrid bikes have front suspension to smooth out small bumps, but some are fully rigid..
Comfort Bicycles
Take everything that's good about the Hybrid bike and adds the wheels and wider tires from the mountain bike. This makes a bicycle that is the perfect general-purpose machine for all riding conditions.

The upright seating position, combined with a shock fork and wide, padded saddle, makes for a comfortable ride on either the road or rail trail. Smooth treads eliminate the vibrations from knobby tires, yet they are wide enough to provide stability on gravel or dirt.

With the addition of fenders, racks, and bags, it's a great solution for that leisurely picnic trip or doing a grocery run.
