    I’ve put some flat bars and MTB shifters and Avid levers on our Gert’s Cannondale Synapse to give her a more upright position. I think that’s a hybrid position now.

    She has a neck injury so struggles to “look up”.

    Works a treat. Total cost with a bit of shopping around was under £50.

    A mate got his wife a Pinnacle (Evans own brand). To be fair I haven’t ridden it but it looked alright and I was surprised how light it was after he told me the price (£400-£500).

    Having a quick look on their website, the most expensive ladies hybrid has Sora gearing and is under 23 lbs, not bad for 500 quid.

    My wife has a long history of hip opperations and wants to change her 2010 Felt Womens specific road bike (already had a MTB) for a hybrid with a more upright position, flat bars and easier gears etc.

    She’s looked at spesh, Giant, Trek and cannondale WSD hybrids and has a shortlist (looking at £500-£800) – VFM teh speh looks like they have the best groupsets.

    Anyone else have any recommendations (looking at a small frame as is 5 ft 4 in)

    Shouldn’t swaps be in the FS forum?

    ditto with mrs S, got her this on Friday for commuting duties and getting out for a spin on the eve/weekend. she loves it already.

    I actually have a Giant Dash 4 for sale at the moment. Women’s “fast hybrid” – road tyres, but flat bars and easy derailleur gears, triple chainset.

    It’s light blue and size S frame.

    commutificating this for my my one; it was a second-hand steal. So light and fast! She doesn’t appreciate it.

    My mum has 2 Specialized Hybrids – she tried a slicked MTB for a while, but the hybrids are so much quicker. Great bikes for the money. Vita, I think the model is.
