BikeRide works hard to help you find the lowest prices and information on each bike from the widest possible range of sources. BikeRide is reader-supported, and sometimes we receive commissions for links you click on. Read Privacy Policy

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 GOMO Balance Bike is affordable and attractive. Both Rascal Rides and Two Wheeling Tots rank it as one of the best budget balance bikes. The bike has room for adjustment in the handlebars and seat. The bike has a longer wheelbase than competitors offering riders excellent stability. The bike has a footrest that children can use for tricks once they master the skill of gliding. Unfortunately, the bike has plastic quick-release adjustment clamps and rims that may easily become damaged. The foam tires do not provide adequate traction for off-road adventures.

GOMO Balance Bike Review

Fortunately, the GOMO balance bike manages to be both affordable and well-designed. It doesn’t have the same features as high-end balance bikes (like pneumatic air tires and a hand brake), but it does offer simplicity and functionality at a price that won’t cause your kids to eat Ramen for the next month.
