BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

19 reasons to buy

  • The M-340 can carry a maximum weight of 350 lb, including rider and cargo.
  • Addmotor includes a rear basket with the M-340. It has a ‘48 L’ carrying capacity.
  • An included front basket can carry ‘9 liters’ of cargo.
  • The M-340’s half-twist throttle is available from a dead stop.
  • A reviewer says the M-340 delivers 80 Nm of torque.
  • The M-340 has a Class-2 top speed of 20 mph. This can be tweaked to hit 26 mph.
  • Testers found that the M-340’s weight distribution is nigh-optimal.
  • A wooden footrest platform allows M-340 riders to sit on the throttle... and roll.
  • Motor inhibitors work with the M-340’s brakes to reduce stopping distance.
  • A low step-through frame helps less-flexible riders to mount the M-340.
  • A highly adjustable stem fits the M-340 to riders from 5’2” to 6’4” in height.
  • Integrated front and rear lights are provided with the M-340.
  • Mammoth 4”-wide tires provide shock-absorbance and grip on multiple surfaces.
  • An 80 mm suspension fork helps to smooth-out on-road imperfections.
  • Gear range is covered by a 7-speed cassette, combined with 5 levels of pedal-assist.
  • An expert is impressed by strength-reinforcing gussetry, on the M-340's frame.
  • Seniors may appreciate that the M-340’s seat is wide and features a backrest.
  • One tester says the M-340’s mechanical brakes stop on a dime.
  • Front and rear fenders are included with the Addmotor M-340.

7 reasons not to buy

  • The M-340’s hub motor is in the trike’s front wheel, resulting in some slippage.
  • Owners must remove the M-340’s seatpost before removing this trike's battery.
  • The M-340’s cadence sensor results in some lag when activating pedal-assist.
  • On the M-340’s rear wheels, the left brake pulls much harder than the right.
  • Like all 3-wheelers, the M-340 is unstable at higher speeds, especially on turns.
  • With 20” rear wheels and a 7-speed cassette, the M-340’s derailleur dangles low.
  • The M-340’s mechanical brakes are very squeaky.

Bottom line

It’s beefy, basket-ready and equipped with a footrest. This Class 2 electric trike is stable on flat ground but dicey on turns, like most three-wheelers. Addmotor specify the M-340 as having a 48V 17.5Ah battery but also a 768Wh capacity. This only makes sense if the battery is 48V 16Ah. Either way, a tester says this trike’s real-world range is around 25 miles, while Addmotor specifies 55 miles. They don’t list the bike’s total weight but list ‘shipping weight’ as 140 lb, so we know this is a hefty rig (probably around ~80 lb). A sound option for running cargo-heavy errands at a casual and cruisy pace.

Addmotor M-340 Review: 750-Watt, Comfy, Stable Electric Trike

The M-340 is a comfortable trike that comes stock with pretty much everything you need for a fun day at the beach, trip to the grocery store or just a nice, leisurely ride. Whatever. You get it.

E-Bike for Everyone. Best E-Trike 2022 (Addmotor M-340 Electric Fat Tire Tricycle Review)

This bike is super-solid, it goes really fast and it’s built to last. It’s really easy to get off. You just step your foot off the frame and you’re there, and to get on is twice as easy.

I Bought an Electric 3-Wheel Bike for $█,███… Here’s What It’s Like

If there’s somebody out there that doesn’t like riding bikes or has a hard time staying up, this might be a great option for you. It is a very high-quality, very well-made bike. You do not want to be turning on this thing. This is a straight-line trike, right here. This is something that, maybe older people might ride and they just want to get out for some exercise but they don’t want an actual bike.
