Hi all. I'm looking into buying a bike. I've never bought a decent bike so I'm a bit clueless as to what to look for. I would love a road bike but I don't want to be limited to only riding on road and I don't have enough money to get 2 bikes, so that will have to wait until later in life! So that leaves mountain bikes, but I will be doing a fair amount of road riding as well so I was thinking of looking at hybrid bikes. Thing is I don't know much about bikes! First off, how 'robust' are hybrids? I wont be jumping down mountains or anything hardcore but I would like to use it off road and not have to worry about breaking it! My budget is not great, perhaps £300-400 but the less spent the better. Anything I should look for/avoid? Particular brands etc? One last question, where would you suggest buying from? There are no decent bike shops near me so I will almost definitely be buying online. Thanks very much for any help.
