Cross-Terrain Crossovers: The 9 Best Hybrid Bikes

Giant Escape 3

Giant makes some great bikes, but their hybrid models tend to bear aluminum forks that will give you a headache should you go after anything but the smoothest of rides. The Escape 3 uses steel rather than aluminum, which smooths out the bumps and keeps your jaw from clacking while you ride. It’s only flaw is a freewheel cog set instead of a cassette, which is an archaic and less efficient shifting method that can be a turn-off if you like to use all the gears. Still, it’s a solid option with a tiny issue that you’re unlikely to notice. Purchase: $340
