10 of the Best Commuter Hybrid Bikes for Under £500

Out top rated commuter hybrid bikes. 10 of the very best for under 500 with tips and buying advice

If you like an upright position, cruising along cycle lanes and paths with a pannier bag on the back, then the super stylish Bobbin Birdie is the commuter hybrid bike for you.

A classic Dutch or Sit-up-and-beg style bike, it’s available in a rainbow of colours, and rides well too.

The rugged steel frame means this bike isn’t the lightest, but it’s tough enough to survive the urban environment. A step-through frame and kick stand are very hand features, as is the chain guard which stops any loose clothing or trousers getting oil marks or caught in the moving parts.

The Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub gear is brilliant for urban riding. All the gear working is contained in a sealed drum, which means significantly less servicing or need to replace parts. Unless you’ve got some major hills on your route, three gears should be enough for most journeys.

Finished with the all important comfortable handlebars and sprung, cushioned saddle, and integral mudguards, it’s ready to ride and looks pricier than it is.
