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

Information on this bike was confusing, to say the least. In some places, it was deemed a ‘mountain bike’ and advertised as having 26 inch wheels and full suspension. Elsewhere, it is said to be a road bike with 700c wheels. Questions to the manufacturer received the response that it had 700c wheels and 26” tires, which is an impossibility. In truth, it seems to have 700c wheels with aero-shaped rims and wider road or hybrid tires. There seems to be only one frame size, variously stated as either 52 or 54cm. Promotional material claimed that, at 35lbs, this bike was “lightest in its class”. However, this is clearly a hefty weight for either a road or mountain bike. With the available clearance, it seems possible to put narrower gravel tires on this bike. There are no mounts on the fork, but riders could attach a rear rack with mounts near the rear dropouts and using a seat-clamp adaptor. With a seat-bag and frame-bag, it could potentially become a light bikepacking rig, although reports on quality and reliability are wildly erratic.
