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!

Burley MyKick Review

Level 3 expert

A solid-quality, basic balance bike with punture-proof honeycomb tires. The Burley-MyKick doesn’t have a handbrake, but still excels in its simplicity.

Burley MyKick Review

Level 1 expert

The MyKick is a fairly simple balance bike with no handbrakes or foot platform, but maybe that is what drew us to it in the first place. It’s solid, but still fairly lightweight which is key to smaller riders.

Review: Burley MyKick Balance Bike

Level 1 expert

The dimensions work well for him to be sturdy even before he has started learning to glide. He can control himself on steep downhills well.
