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!

- Galliums were lauded for being stiffer than a flagpole on the 4th of July.
- At 790g in medium, the monocoque Carbon frame is a featherweight.
- In sprints, the Gallium Pro was aggressively fast.
- The Gallium’s Geometry offers a race-oriented, forward-leaning ride position.
- Reputedly, the Gallium Pro climbs like a frightened cat.

8 reasons not to buy
- A few reviewers saw the Gallium as less aggressive than some of its competitors.
- Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels seemed overweight and underspecced for race use.
- A tester expected the lighter Dura-Ace groupset at the Pro’s proffered price.
- On 2016 models, testers said the cockpit felt insufficiently stiff on descents.
- Some reviewers would have preferred 160mm rotor/s over the 140mm specced.
- Vibration damping was modest. The Gallium could tire with judder transmission.
- As a non-aero design, the Gallium demanded more rider input at high speeds.
- One owner’s toptube showed striations. Argon would not warranty the frame but warned against use.
