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.

The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

Charge City Electric Bike – 2023 Designed for City Living and Riding
If you want an easy-to-store e-bike that provides enough power and range for street riding and small hills, then the Charge City electric bike is a good choice. It is not as comfortable to ride as other commuter bikes or as powerful.
The Charge City E-Bike Was Designed For City Commuting
The downside is that the smaller motor can only deliver 250 watts of power, on average. That’s fine for cities, but don’t expect it to revolutionize a hilly commute or sustain high speeds over long distances. That’s simply not what it was designed for.
