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 ENGWE P26. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

11 reasons to buy

  • Testers say the P26's nimble handling and power make it "fun" to ride around town.
  • According to experts, the P26 rides well on light off-road trails.
  • The large display is visible in bright sunlight.
  • The P26 has an adjustable handlebar stem.
  • Reviewers say the upright riding position is comfortable for most riders.
  • Experts highlight the P26's solid, "well-built" feel, with quality frame welds.
  • Testers report "impressive" battery range. One gets 30.1 miles riding at pedal assist level 5.
  • Several experts call the P26 a "great" all-rounder.
  • Testers appreciate the sleekly integrated battery and "striking" looks.
  • The 500W motor provides "zippy" acceleration and climbs moderate inclines well, say reviewers.
  • The P26 comes with a "bright" headlight and ergonomic grips.

11 reasons not to buy

  • The P26's 220lb weight capacity is well below average.
  • Testers bemoan the "laggy" and inconsistent pedal assistance.
  • The P26's entry-level price is reflected in its spec, such as mechanical disc brakes and Shimano Tourney gearing.
  • A tester reports three punctures to the bike's Chaoyang "mountain" tires.
  • At 53lb without accessories, the P26 is slightly too heavy to carry.
  • ENGWE states the one-size P26 fits riders from 5' to 6'8". A 6'1" tester finds the bike too small to pedal comfortably.
  • Fenders, a pannier rack, and a rear light aren't included or available from ENGWE.
  • The suspension fork, 1.95" tires, and "uncomfortable" saddle transmit too much vibration at high speeds, contributing to aches and pains for one tester.
  • A reviewer calls the included bell "useless."
  • One tester bemoans assembly issues, including over-tightened fender nuts and difficulty tightening the stem.
  • ENGWE users complain about unreliable components and frustrating customer service.

Bottom line

ENGWE's P26 is a hybrid commuter e-bike with a 500W motor and "striking" looks. The comfortable upright riding position, "nimble" handling, and solid range impress. Testers are less happy with the unresponsive pedal assistance, uncomfortable saddle, and puncture-prone tires. Additionally, the bike is too cramped for taller riders, and vibrations at high speed become painful over extended distances. Reviewers deem the P26 a "decent" budget-friendly electric commuter. However, the lack of a pannier rack, fenders, and taillight on the version sold in the US means limited out-of-the-box practicality.

ENGWE P26 800W E-Bike Review

Overall, the P26 is a wonderful option for commuters. Though I did test it out on uneven terrain, it was at its best when I took it up to the grocer and mailbox, and I suspect its primary purpose is for navigating city streets.
