So a hybride have a linear pull brake or disk brake, instead of cantilever brake for the cyclocross
and the handlebar is a flatbar or monkeybar on a hybride and we have a regular road handlebar on a cyclocross and the last most difference is the tire on hybride we gonne have a 700x32-35 with hard rolling surface for a cyclocross we have a tire with more grip on the tire side .... just take a look to the pictures ....
My Trek hybrid is my favorite bike of the four I have. I am planning on swapping the handle bar for a mustache or albatros bar and I'm going to swap the grip shifters for friction end bar shifters. It has more of a road geometry than MTB so it should look really good.
My “newbie” testimony, by comparing with 4 different mountain bikes my friends own, is that a Hybrid is by far more confy to ride, more enjoyable on the road. It is also faster. On the other side, all of the controls are more “elegant” less rugged. Many parts are plastic instead of metal on the MTBs. Hence it is not able to take the beating any ΜΤΒ would.
So a Hybrid may not replace an MTB on a mountain in the same way an MTB may not compete the Hybrid on the road. It is up to the user to clearly define his goals and make the right decision…
