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!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the DYU FF500. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

8 reasons to buy

  • Most reviewers agree that the FF500 offers good value.
  • The FF500's hill climbing impresses experts.
  • The mechanical disc brakes demonstrate ample stopping power in tests.
  • Reviewers say the suspension fork and seatpost are good quality for this price point.
  • The knobbly 4" tires handle sand, gravel, and dirt roads well in testing.
  • Reviewers and buyers report quick and easy assembly.
  • Experts appreciate the handlebar adjustability.
  • Testers praise the FF500's "cushy" saddle, which features an inflatable seat cushion.

9 reasons not to buy

  • Reviewers say the unresponsive cadence sensor leads to "jerky" and "aggressive" acceleration using pedal assist.
  • The DYU FF500 lacks a taillight.
  • Testers think the folded FF500 (59.6" x 12.2" x 28.3") is likely too large for most trunks.
  • At 68lb, many buyers will struggle to lift the FF500.
  • One expert finds that the bike unfolds when maneuvering it.
  • DYU markets the FF500 as a mountain bike, but reviewers agree it should be kept to light off-road terrains.
  • Some experts experience noisy and rubbing brakes.
  • A reviewer notes that the display doesn't show the riding speed when the motor isn't engaged.
  • DYU states the FF500 fits riders from 5'2" to 6'4" but a 5'5" reviewer finds the frame too large.

Bottom line

The DYU FF500 is a folding e-bike with fat tires and a step-through frame. It earns praise for its comfort and ability to handle light off-roading thanks to the "cushy" saddle, suspension fork and seatpost, and knobbly fat tires. Testers also appreciate the quick assembly, impressive hill-climbing capabilities, and stopping power. The most noteworthy cons are the high weight, clunky cadence sensor, and absence of a taillight. Additionally, DYU's 'mountain bike' tag exaggerates its capabilities. However, reviewers believe the FF500 is a good budget-friendly option for commuters.
