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

There is no doubt that the Pro Performer is a beautiful machine, available in an impressive array of 1980’s throwback designs and colors. Some have said that it is a case of form over function, but they are in the minority. These bikes are simple and strong, with CNC’ed stems and superlaced hubs. The ride quality is reportedly fast, smooth and fun. If you are a big kid who wants to ride fast and look good doing it, this may be the rig for you.
