Hybrid Bike Buying Guide 2021
Buying a new bike is an opportunity to decide how you want to ride. Casual cyclists and commuters can appreciate bikes capable of covering any distance on paved roads or established trails. Hybrid cruisers combine the best features of mountain and cruiser bikes in builds that top out at faster speeds than beach cruisers. Learn more about the features of hybrid bikes and find out about five of the best hybrid bikes of 2021.
What is a Hybrid Bike?
Hybrid bikes are designed for medium-to-long distance rides on streets and trails. A hybrid cruiser such as the Sixthreezero EVRYjourney unites the comfortable frame design of a beach cruiser with mountain bike geometry to take on uphill rides and unpaved terrain.
Make sure any hybrid bike you are considering has the right features for the way you ride. Check the frame and wheel size and rider fit recommendations as well as technical specifications for derailleurs and the size and material of the frame, fork, headset, wheels and tires.
Bike buyers should also consider whether an electric motor can make it possible to get more out of a hybrid model. Sixthreezero offers hybrid bikes powered by 250 Watt Hour or 500W rear hub drive electric motors that run on rechargeable batteries to assist with pedaling or supply full electric power.
The full line of Sixthreezero hybrid bikes includes the BodyEase, ExploreyourRange, Paven’Trail and ReachyourDestination models. EVRYjourney bikes are among the best hybrids and are available in a wide range of color and speed options. Here are five builds to consider, from the upgraded Deluxe to three, seven and twenty-one speed models as well as the EVRYjourney Electric Tricycle.
This Deluxe bike build has a stylish matte black frame with all the built-in features commuters and recreational cyclists need. Carry everyday cargo and count on having the safety and security features you need to secure this striking ride and stay safe when riding in low-light conditions:
- Seven-speed derailleur
- Ergonomic riding position
- Integrated lock
- Basket secured to frame
- Pedal-powered light
Cyclists who ride primarily on paved surfaces and beaten trails will appreciate the EVRYjourney frame geometry. The ergonomic riding position promotes comfort and longevity, even when you’re riding up to 20 miles on terrain with varied elevation. An integrated lock and light powered by pedaling make it easy to ensure that you always have the security and safety features you need at hand.
The vintage styling of the EVRYjourney 7 Speed in Cream makes this hybrid cruiser a good choice for casual rides and commutes. The frames of these bikes stand out for their ability to accommodate riders who range in height from five feet up to six feet, four inches tall. Several features set this build apart:
- Lightweight aluminum frame
- Seven-speed derailleur
- 26” wheels with two-inch semi-slick tires
- Front and rear handbrakes
- Fender and rear rack
The EVRYjourney Seven Speed Cream is a great choice of hybrid cruiser for casual or regular riders. The cruiser-inspired wheels and tires on this model provide good balance and cushioning for road or trail riding. This seven-speed version of a bike also available with single, three or 21 speed derailleurs is a good choice for riding on varied terrain.
The Three speed version of the EVRYjourney in a navy frame color is a good choice for riders who do not stray too far from flat, paved terrain. Here are several features that make this three-speed model a good choice:
- Navy aluminum frame
- Three-speed derailleur
- 26” wheels with tires with aqua accent rim
- Brown synthetic leather grips and seat
- Snap on accessory attachment points
This hybrid cruiser is still able to provide more pedaling support on elevation changes than the single-speed version of this bike. If you regularly ride in areas with more elevation changes or want to enhance the hybrid capabilities of this bike, you may prefer the seven or twenty-one speed EVRYjourney or consider the version of this frame paired with an electric motor and rechargeable battery.
Get the smoothest and most stable ride for easily transporting cargo. A seven-speed electric tricycle with a large rear basket and three 1.95” tires provides a smooth ride, and a 250 watt hour battery makes it possible to travel 15 to 30 miles with pedal assistance or 15 miles on full electric power. Find out more about the features of this unique style of electric bike:
- Aluminum alloy frame
- Display with speedometer
- Pedal assist power meter
- Thumb throttle
- 250 watt rear hub drive motor and battery
Whether you want a stable ride or a powered solution for transporting cargo, you should not overlook the features of the EVRYjourney Electric Tricycle. This seven-speed build may also be available with a choice of Teal, Navy or Matte Black frame.
A lightweight steel frame and 21-speed derailleur set this version of the EVRYjourney in a class of its own. This model also features an ergonomic frame design that allows for forward pedaling and proper leg extension. Traverse any terrain on a model that has all of the following features:
- Steel frame
- 21-speed derailleur
- Chrome fender and rear rack
- Front and rear handbrakes
- Designed for elevation or distance
This steel, 21-speed version of the EVRYjourney emphasizes the mountain bike origins of the hybrid bicycle frame. This hybrid cruiser is also available in single, three or seven speed versions for riding on flat, paved terrain or shorter recreational riding. This model can also be a good choice for long-distance casual rides or commutes.
A hybrid bike can be a great choice for recreational rides or commutes. Hybrid builds excel on paved surfaces and packed trails. Electric hybrid bikes with batteries and whisper-quiet 250W or 500W motors provide riders with the option of using pedal assistance or full electric power at any point in a ride for the ultimate in cycling comfort. If you are preparing to purchase a hybrid bike, the Sixthreezero EVRYjourney is an investment in taking incredible rides in 2021 and beyond.
