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!

  • Customers had trouble communicating with overseas-based customer service.
  • Some new bikes arrived with non-functioning motors.
  • Without modification, this bike was too small for riders over 6’.
  • Owners and experts believed that the Ancheer 350W Electric 'Mountain Bike' was a commuter, misdescribed as a ‘mountain-bike’.
  • A portion of buyers found the 26” model’s battery life to be underwhelming.
  • Mechanical disc brakes had a stopping distance of 22 feet, under testing.

Bottom line

Ancheer’s 350W e-bikes come in two flavors. The 21-speed, orange “Sunshine” model uses 26” wheels and comes kit with a 8Ah battery to suit shorter journeys. With a larger 10.4Ah capacity and bigger 27.5” wheels, the 24-speed ‘Blue Spark’ model was a more versatile choice. It received positive feedback regarding its uphill power and long range. Both bikes are presented as ‘mountain bikes’, but it is stressed by an expert tester and buyers, that anything rougher than level dirt roads is outside of this e-bike’s scope. Nevertheless, the large-volume tires and entry-level suspension helped tackle less-level city roads. Overseas customer service did cause frustration for buyers of faulty examples.

Ancheer 27.5-Inch Blue Spark Electric Bike Review

…a 350W hub motor and 374Wh battery combined to give it the longest distance range and make it one of the most powerful models we tested… we wouldn’t recommend doing any hardcore mountain biking on this bike…
