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

Fat tyres, disc brakes, and upright position and a raft of other features make this bike well suited to the urban environment, or a rugged commute.

The features of a 29er mountain bike and adaptations of the best hybrid bikes blended together gets you the Lithium Three from Pinnacle.

Those fat Kenda K-West 38c tyres will make short work of potholes, keeping the ride feel steady and stable. They’re also puncture resistant, which will decrease the likelihood of roadside tube changes.

In terms of stopping power, the Tecktro hydraulic disc brakes are perfect for wet and muddy conditions, performing better than traditional rim brakes. The fact that they are hydraulic means much less maintenance, and even more control.

A 24 speed Shimano Altus gear set finishes the bike off perfectly, with a great range to get you up and down hills, with durable parts. The aluminium frame keeps the weight down, with strong steel forks to cope with lumps, bumps and a little rough treatment.

And to up your visibility in low light conditions, there are reflective details on the frame itself.
