If I am on a "normal" paved by trail, hills, and straights, not mountains, sunny weather, and I have two bikes, a comfort bike and a hybrid. Is one harder to ride than the other? The distance will be about 10 miles, paved, mostly flat trail.
One reason I ask is that if two people ride together and one is on a comfort, the other on a hybrid, if the comfort is hard to pedal, ride, etc., I would never be able to stay together (I would have the hybrid.)
For the sake of argument, both are higher quality bikes, not big box. Is there some reason a comfort bike is inherently harder to pedal?
This is an example of what I saw:
"Beach Cruiser" was also a term used.
