Walk into any bike store and you will see one thing immediately: Rows of brand new beautiful gleaming hybrid bikes for men, just waiting to be tested and owned. With a wealth of choices, most people would wonder why this particular bike has become so popular among young urban men. The reasons are easy to see.
Because these hybrid bikes combine the best of both worlds they are perfect for someone who only wants one bike. They take the strength of a mountain bike with its oversized wheels and sturdy frame and combine it with the comfort of a touring bike. This means you only need one bike for that weekend fun.
Back in the day of the racing bike craze, every young man wanted a racing bike. It may well have been that they imagined themselves racing through Europe. But those bikes were pricy, often ranging as much as several tens of thousands for top of the line. Hybrid bikes are a reasonable option within the range of many.
Another element that has gained a great deal of popularity for the hybrid bike is how easy it is to customize the bike to a person's individual needs. Adding mud guards or side saddles is simple with this basic design.
In the end it is easy to see why so many urban young men are flocking to a hybrid bike for commuting, fun outings, and even big social biking events. Reasonably priced, easy to ride, and a cinch to customize, they are made for today's modern men.
