A hybrid bike is what you need if you’re looking for the perfect all-rounder and thankfully, there is a lot of choice for under £1000. We have listed a few of our favourite sub-£1000 hybrids… and some of them will leave you enough change to consider buying helmets, clothing or accessories.
If cycling to work is your aim check if your employer is part of a Cycle to Work scheme so you can enjoy valuable tax savings. Along with running our own scheme, we also accept vouchers for other schemes including CycleScheme and Halfords (Cycle2Work). Alternatively, to spread the cost with monthly payments, you can also take advantage of our interest free credit options.
BEST HYBRID BIKES UNDER £1000 – WHAT TO LOOK FOR
Frame: you can expect a very good lightweight A1 or ALUXX alloy frame, or even one made with different grades of alloy, to give you rigidity where you need it, and flexibility in other places.
Gearing: you can expect good quality components (such as from industry-leading brand, Shimano). Because it’s likely you’ll be riding on a variety of flat and hilly routes, go for something with a wide spread of gears (from one to twenty-one or more).
Practicality: depending on when, where and how often you plan to ride, you might want to consider things like mudguard and pannier rack compatibility. Suspension varies between bikes but if you plan to ride on rough terrain, a bike with front suspension is definitely something you’ll want to consider (although it will add some weight). Hybrids are generally the most practical of all the bike types.
