    I find the lack of suspension and the fact the slick tyres get shredded by small stones the issue with my hybrid. Much prefer it on tarmac and probably would have been better buying a road bike.

    Will probably end up with one of each!

    Yeah it all depends on what I'm using my bike for. I don't really have any desire to do serious off-roading so a mountain bike is bloody useless to me.
    If I'm going to be tackling more challenging terrain I'll just stick some more hard wearing tyres on my hybrid.

    I use my bike for pretty much every journey I do now unless the use of a car can't be avoided. Do I really want to be taking a £2000 road bike into town and be worried about it getting nicked or damaged? Not really and I think this is where the hybrid comes into its own.

    100 miles sounds like a challenge. Is that all on tarmac, or would there be any off road?
