Let’s take a squint at the main features of the 2015 Edgewood Hybrid. Each one of them is designed for precise handling, smooth riding and durability.

Tough Light-Weight Frame

DB 6061 T6 Butted Aluminum alloy sport hybrid geometry frame with formed tubes and replaceable hanger is really the core competency of this bike, and this combines superbly with the suspension to provide superior comfort. The low standover height makes for easy on-off for a range of heights and the prototypal geometry gives you a smooth, safe ride every time. Handlebars are 50mm steel riser.

These high quality components ensure that you’ll be to love and keep your bike for a long time to come. The simple, put-together features and easy assembling make it a popular choice for families and people of all ages. You only require a set of basic tools that you’d have lying round the house to fix just the wheels and handlebars – plus you get that little extra kick out of knowing that you built it yourself!

Comfort positioning

The sport hybrid geometry also makes for upright pedaling position because of the slightly higher built-in head tubes and this makes the bike truly yours even over long distances. Adjustable flat handlebars plus nice padded DB deluxe hybrid big cushy saddle with suspension seatpost that’s kind to your butt, while the comfy ellipse-shaped grips are soft on your hands.

The 63mm Travel Sport comfort front suspension really helps! Safety features abound, with Tektro alloy linear-pull brakes for fail-safe stops.
