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 Ecotric Hammer is a cruiser-style electric bike with a 750W motor, suspension fork, suspension seatpost, and fat tires. Experts enjoy the performance in snow, decent range, and stopping power. However, they note the brake lever setup could be a safety issue during initial rides. Owners and testers enjoy the ride comfort, but only for those 6’ and over. Many buyers find the handlebars and other components come loose. Additionally, experts and owners report various mechanical issues and electronic failures. When it works, the Hammer is deemed a fun, comfortable fat bike, but potential buyers should be aware of likely problems.
