I've ridden both, and actually used both as commuters. I found the hybrid infinitely superior in terms of speed, rideability and convenience.

This is so dumb. Now you're a group of 50 "racing our bikes man" on the road and you don't expect hostility? There's no way what you were doing was remotely legal.
