- New hybrid for my wife?
- Mary HingeMember
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.Posted 4 years agozilog6128Subscriber
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.Posted 4 years ago
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)Posted 4 years ago
