Is biking a new hobby for you? When you’re shopping for a new bike, think about factors such as cost, comfort, and style. Hybrid bikes give you more control in diverse settings (and riding conditions) because they blend the characteristics of both mountain bikes and road bikes. We’ll discuss the main features of some hybrid bike options by cost category and cover what some riders are saying.

Under 500

Quality and cost might be correlated, but there are still great bikes at pretty affordable prices. The following bikes are generally considered quality options and cost less than $500.

Hiland Aluminum Hybrid

The Hiland Aluminum Hybrid costs less than $380. Some reviews mention that parts arrived misshapen or damaged.

  • What’s your budget?
  • How will you be using the bike?
  • What features are necessary?
  • What compromises are you willing to make when it comes to quality?
  • How heavy is the bike?
  • What size do you need? (You can find size charts pretty easily)
  • Which gears, suspension, brakes, and handlebars best serve your purposes?
  • Do you want a new, used, or refurbished bike?
