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 contact@bikeride.com 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

10 reasons to buy

  • Riders were impressed with the quality of the Twenty9er’s components, from the 3-piece crank to the rear disc brake.
  • The alloy frame was lauded for its quality and was appreciated for fitting riders up to 6’6”.
  • The entire bike was said to be built well and easily withstood the size and weight of a grown man, under rough use.
  • Reports described the bike as very quick and easy to assemble.
  • At this low price the Twenty9er was considered great value, especially with the inclusion of a disc brake and 3-piece crank.
  • A lot of owners used this bike as an urban cruiser and were impressed with it as a daily rider.
  • The gear ratio was praised for its suitability for both climbing and cruising.
  • Owners found that the Twenty9er rode smoothly and proved easy to wheelie.
  • Admirers cooed over Twenty9er colorways, including matte black, white and the Chicago Cubs special edition (in blue/red/white).
  • Owners called this bike solid, considering it a tougher urban / commuting alternative to a standard singlespeed or fixie.

5 reasons not to buy

  • The rear disc brake received a fair amount of criticism; as being undersized, underpowered and difficult to calibrate.
  • A few owners received scratched frames.
  • Pedals were sometimes considered cheap, resulting in an undesirable level of flex and an audible creak.
  • The gear ratio was too low for some users, who desired a larger chainring and a more challenging ride.
  • The crankset seemed to be replaced often. It was described as being solid and reliable, but unnecessarily heavy. One owner knocked 2lbs off the bike by upgrading to an alloy crank.

Bottom line

When compared to other 29ers, this Twenty9er undercut them by a considerable price margin. This is done without compromising build quality. In return, what you don’t get – is the flashier graphics and accoutrements of competing brands. While some owners were big enough to throw the Twenty9er around like a regular BMX, others found a 26 inch bike more suited to this purpose. A great many owners chose to use this as a more solid alternative to a fixie or singlespeed, for urban cruising and commuting. And its built for wheelies.

This is lighter than the Big Ripper – and it’s easier to wheelie.
