So, what exactly is a comfort bike? A comfort bike is pretty much what most people think of when they think of what a bike is. They’ve got a relaxed geometry, which means that you’re not bent over to maximize aerodynamics, they’ve got a straight handlebar and they come with a comfy saddle, not the ultra-slim racing bike saddle. Schwinn’s comfort bikes are among the most popular, they’re affordable, simple to maintain and fun. Hybrid bikes are a bit more versatile than a comfort bike. They’re great for commuting to work and riding on a wide range of surfaces. A hybrid bike can go on some trails, paths and unpaved roads. Like the comfort bike, it’s got you riding more upright. They’re excellent bikes families and fun, social rides.
