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

Cannondale's Quick is a family of fitness bikes that inject more speed and agility into the traditional hybrid segment. The 35mm tires make it possible to enjoy light gravel trails. Experts and buyers agree the Quick is fast, comfortable, and fun. They relish the "beautiful" paint, praise the stopping power of the disc brake builds, and appreciate the relatively low weight. Lights, fenders, and a rack aren't included. The 'women's' models lack female-specific saddles and geometry. The stiff frame can transmit bumps too efficiently. Nevertheless, the Quick is celebrated as great value in this segment.
