Bike Size Charts

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!

Bottom line

ANCHEER's Gladiator is an electric bike with a 500W motor, a suspension fork, and little else. Hill-climbing ability, battery range, and a "fun" ride impress owners, given the price. Owners report traveling 30+ miles on roads and trails, including notable elevation gain. The Gladiator also earns praise for its performance on light trails. It lacks fenders, a cargo rack, and a rear light, and buyers report niggling quality-control issues. However, they appreciate the responsive customer support. Overall, owners say the Gladiator provides "excellent value" at such an impressively affordable price point.
