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

The Cannondale Quick Neo comes in two frame shapes. The standard diamond frame suits taller riders, while the ‘Remixte’ variation suits those of shorter stature. This is a versatile bike that can be used for commuting, road-riding, fitness, errands, light gravel or touring (with the EQ model). It’s lighter and sleeker than most of the competition, while remaining mid-priced. The Cannondale app covers speed, battery percentage, range and power. In The Netherlands, the Quick Neo was nominated for ‘E-bike of the Year’ for 2019.

To see why this bike is so light …the secret is in how thin the frame is around the battery housing… the manufacturer is experienced with building lightweight aluminum bikes… You can use it in a touring configuration… I recommend it for gravel…
