I own 3 mountain bikes and a cycle cross bike. What are you trying to find out about the hybrids? They are basically a road bike with a mountain bike set up. They don't do anything very well, but go down paved roads in comfort. They are not fast or dirt worthy, but if all you are doing is cruising paved trails and the occassional dirt road they work good.
If you want to hunt off of it, there are some suggestions i would give you.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
