To help you choose the best bike for riding around neighborhood roads, trails or mountainous areas, we tested models from all of the top brands, looking for bicycles made from ultra-durable components such as aluminum alloy and hybrid metals. We also preferred products with a wide variety of useful accoutrements, like handbrakes located both the front and rear of the bicycle, so as to maximize riding safety, and multiple shifting options (at least seven), allowing the product to excel in many different terrains, even throughout off-road applications. Of course, we also liked attractive designs that simply look great.
The best bicycle we tried was easily the RALEIGH Bikes Redux Hybrid Bike, which is made from highly durable components, including aluminum alloy with custom formed tubing, This bike excels with a nearly any terrain, including standard roads and rocky hills, thanks to nine speed shifters with gears to match. The hydraulic disc brakes are extremely powerful, easily coming to a full stop in moments even during a rainstorm. The weight is on the lower side, at just 43 pounds, and the design is attractive and available in two color choices.
