    Many thanks.Will do.
  • I'm really glad your wife wants to start cycling with you! I'm not going to do a hard sell here but when I started I wanted a hybrid too, I didn't feel confident to ride a road bike with skinny tires and funny handlebars. The bike shop reassured me and convinced me to get a road bike and I found it really wasn't that scary. A lot of entry level road bikes have a second set of break levers on top of the bars, so you can still ride it like a hybrid and it's much nicer to have less resistance and go a little faster for a bit less effort.

    At the end of the day it's important to go with what she feels comfortable riding - the most important thing is to enjoy it, but I'm glad I got persuaded.
