    Default Best Hybrid bike?

    Its time for the cycle to work scheme to come around again at my work, i fancy a new bike. I've signed up to the scheme, yet i cannot decide what kind of bike to spend my cash on!

    I am wanting to use the bike on the roads for winter miles/fitness training and also along tow paths/canal banks type thing with the kids - i think this rules out a full road bike, so i'm looking at good quality hybrids.

    I have looked at 2 so far,

    http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/s...egoryId_165534
    http://www.merida-bikes.com/en_gb/bi...ss+/Speeder+T3

    I think i'm swaying towards the boardman as they get a great write up, but i can only get this through halfrauds, whereas i prefer buying through my local bike shop and they can supply the merida...confused = yup!

    Any of you guys recommend other bikes to confuse me some more, or add some opinion about the 2 i have linked?

    Cheers

    Why an hybrid and not a mountain bike? Just get a set of slicks too go on the roads with then you have the best of all worlds just not Down Hilling.

    I looked at Hybrids, Road and MTB's when looking for a new bike. Ruled out the road bike straight away. Eventually went for a hard tail MTB and instead of the fitted knobbly tyres, bought a set of hybrid continental tyres and had them fitted. It is so easy to ride on roads and equally as good on tracks, towpaths etc.

    Perhaps this could be an option for you?

    I did think about this buddy, but thought it would be better just to get a horse for the course so to speak..

    Good looking bike fella, i would prefer mine without any front suspension as it won't really be needed for what i will be using it for..
