Here at Cycling for Beginners, we know how rough the decision for your first major bicycle purchase can be. There’s a lot to choose from in comfort, style, and utility options. Luckily, bicycle makers have figured that out and now there are designs that come halfway between some options – hybrids.
For that price, it looks like you get a lot with this inexpensive hybrid bicycle. It combines a comfort bike with a road bike to give the comfort bike’s larger seat, higher frame, and wider handlebars for easier riding in combination with the thin road tires and better shifting of a real road bike.
The frame is aluminum T6 hybrid with SR Suntour 63mm forks and comes in 15, 17, 19, and 21 inches to match the size of the rider. A Shimano shifter and Tektro brakes are also included. The whole thing rolls on double-tunnel alloy rims with Kenda Cross 700x40c tires.
If you’re not a serious, hard-core cyclist, then this Diamondback hybrid bicycle is probably one to put on your list as an option. Around the Web, Diamondback Edgewood review entries are showing it to be a quality bike with good workmanship and a great ride, but serious, experienced riders will probably want something better.
For the modest price, though, this is one of the most inexpensive hybrid bicycle of quality out there right now.
