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

A unisex bike at the upper end of the price range, this steed has a number of features that make it a great choice for the regular cycle commuter.

High on that list are the disc brakes. More powerful than the usual v or rim brakes, these work particularly well in wet and muddy conditions. They’re also very durable, and the pads generally don’t need replacing as often as rim brake pads. These one’s are Avid BB5 mechanical brakes and they’re a great addition to a commuter steed.

At this price it’s also great to see Sram X5 gears and shifters. These are quality componants that are more lightweight than those at the lower price points, and have a great smooth feel when you shift gears. 18 gears should get you up and down most hills you’ll encounter.

A light aluminium frame, plus the signature Boardman finishing kit of saddle, handlebars, stem and seatpost, give you a bike that will be speedy on the commute and zippy at the weekend. It’s also fully compatible with mudguards and pannier racks.
