The Discovery 501 has a lightweight alloy Dynamism frame and carbon blade forks. Fitted with a 27 speed Shimano Deore gearset, Shimano V- brakes and Shimano cranks the 501 is a hybrid to be reckoned. All this is finished off with a pair of premier class wheels using Alex Ace 19 rims, Shimano hubs and laced with stainless steel spokes
What is a Hybrid Sports Bike?These are hybrids for the fit! Theyre more for the quick run into work or for a fast hour ride on the weekend rather than purely casual leisure riding. Despite having lots of gears, the lighter components often make this bike a closer relative to the road bike than the mountain bike. A wide range of customising accessories are available to fit these models. For more information on hybrid bikes see our Hybrid Bikes Buying Guide.
