If you’re looking for a bike for your daily commute and for your weekend exercise, a fitness hybrid—that is, a road bike with flat handlebars—may be the right choice. Over the past three years, we’ve spent 60 hours sifting through nearly 50 options, test-ridden more than a dozen bikes, and concluded that the Marin Fairfax 1 is the best hybrid for most people. It provides a stable, comfortable ride on city streets, yet it’s light and agile—and an excellent value.

Marin Fairfax 1, our favorite hybrid bike

This fun-to-ride and capable commuter bike is equally comfortable on longer weekend outings—and it offers far better value than its competitors.

Jamis Coda S2, still the smooth one

Jamis Coda S2

Still the smooth one
This steel-framed bike provides a vibration-dampening ride and some nice extras—brand-name tires and sturdy pedals. But the trade-off is less maneuverability and a steepish uptick in price.
Another good choice
Priority Continuum Onyx, for the neatnik diyer

For the neatnik DIYer
A belt-drive bike that has an easy-to-use internally geared rear hub means less maintenance and no grease on your work clothes. You have to assemble it yourself though (or pay someone else to).
