A Revolution Hybrid is our first recommendation if you’re looking for a best value commuter/hybrid bike ready fitted with full mudguards and an alloy rack.
If you like to sit upright on a bike, it’s worth pointing out that our Hybrid 1 and 2 bikes are fitted with slightly higher handlebars than our Courier bikes, while the Hybrid 3 has higher bars still.
The Revolution Hybrid is available in three options.

Good things shared by every Revolution Hybrid
The alloy wheels are built with 36 spokes to cope better with potholed roads and cyclepaths.
The wheels and saddles are bolted on to make them more secure when the bike is left unattended. (While quick release wheels and seatpost clamps can be convenient for the rider, they can also be a gift for opportunistic scallies intent on nicking bike parts.)
Every Revolution bike is shod by Kenda – one of the world’s best-respected tyre manufacturers.
The Hybrid bike’s Kenda 700×35 tyres (700×38 on the Hybrid 3) are selected for being grippy, pretty fast, comfortably cushioned, hardwearing and puncture resistant.
Frequently spotted on the top brands’ four-figure bikes, Tektro Brakes are among the most reliable brands in bicycling.
You’ll find confidence-inspiring Tektro brakes on every 2016 Revolution bike.
Low gears make hills more doable
The triple chainset on the Hybrid 1 and 2, and the 34t cog on the 7-speed Hybrid 3 ensure you have a nice low gear for helping you up hills.
Quality frame & fork – made to last
The 7005 aluminium alloy frame and hi-tensile steel fork are strong (lifetime guaranteed) and, for the money, relatively lightweight.
Specifying 30% matt black paint finish on every adult 2016 Revolution model is possibly the best example of creating deliberately utilitarian bikes. Why? Because this shade of matt black just happens to be the toughest, the most mark resistant and the least expensive shade in our frame builder’s palette.
We think you’ll agree that a matt black finish looks good without being too bling – not a bad idea on a bike you’re likely to leave unattended when you lock it up.
Believe it or not, the number of decals on many bikes run to double figures once you start counting the stickers on the wheel rims, handlebars, top caps and all. We’ve taken that number down to just three – just enough to identify the bike and register its legal CE compliance. Fewer decals mean more cost savings we pass on to you.
