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!

3 reasons not to buy

  • This lock is described as ‘flimsy’ by an owner.

  • An owner says he’s happy using this lock to secure his lawn chair, but wouldn’t recommend it for a “several-thousand-dollar bicycle”.

Bottom line

Engwe’s Zinc Alloy Bicycle Lock is probably not what you’d use to secure your carbon fiber e-bike. While it has a low weight going for it, this is partially because it is so small. At one foot long, riders are limited by the types of bikes and stationary lock-points they are able to secure it to. But maybe the Engwe Zinc Alloy could just work as discouragement – if you are quickly dashing into a bodega to buy a carton of milk?
