Similar to this question: How much of a difference will I notice going from a Mountain bike to a road bike?
But different, this is for a hybrid vs. an MTB. Is the linked in question still valid? Except that the hybrid is somewhat slower?
The question I linked in also has an accepted answer that is not cited, and only speaks in general terms. I'm curious how much faster it actually is. How much less energy does it take to maintain certain speeds? How much faster does it accelerate under the same amount of power applied?
Does no one test these things? I've been looking around some, and I cannot find anything except this being discussed on forums.
How much faster is a hybrid, on decent pavement, going straight? Let's assume that the MTB has a typical off road tire, while the hybrid uses typical racing slicks. Let's also assume that the gearing is identical, but I'd also love to hear comments that take typical gearing difference into account. If it matters, let's assume the budget is 700 USD for a new MTB and 700 USD for a new hybrid. If it exists, I'd like to know other parameters too, such as acceleration, and the energy required to maintain certain arbitrarily selected speeds.
Has anyone ever tested this? What were the results? Similarly to the video I'm linking to, below? If it has never been tested, what are the estimates?
Surely someone must have either tested this or at least estimated it.
This is the kind of test I'm hoping for (similar to, not identical, going flat is fine, different tests are fine), as a minium:
Similar conditions, same rider, or swapping riders.
What I'd really like to see, which is perhaps better asked in a different question, is a chart that has done multiple tests. Such as putting racing slicks on the MTB, to see how close that brings the MTB to the hybrid's performance, different gear ratios, etc. Obviously, everything on the same road, under the same conditions, with the same riders.
