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 Hiboy EX6. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

9 reasons to buy

  • The EX6 comes with fenders, a rack rated for 33lb, integrated lights with brake activation, and a “loud” bell.
  • Experts praise the comfort of the upright riding position, soft grips, and “cushy” seat.
  • Testers report “good” acceleration from the 500W motor.
  • Reviewers appreciate the decent grip from the knobbly 4" tires.
  • Experts agree the 720Wh battery is good value at this price point.
  • Testers savor the “smooth” ride on and off the road.
  • The mechanical disc brakes provide ample stopping power, according to experts.
  • A reviewer appreciates the enhanced safety of the large reflectors.
  • The quick-release front wheel provides added convenience when transporting the EX6 or fixing a puncture.

8 reasons not to buy

  • Experts agree there are better alternatives at this price point.
  • Hiboy states the EX6 suits riders from 5’6” to 6’6”, but a 6’ tester feels “way too big” for it.
  • Testers lament the “very small” display and “hard to use” buttons.
  • Experts feel similarly priced folding bikes offer greater utility and performance.
  • The “basic” non-adjustable suspension fork bottoms out over relatively small bumps.
  • Reviewers complain about ghost pedaling.
  • A tester finds the seat gets uncomfortable after five miles.
  • The EX6 is Class 3-only, so it may not suit local regulations.

Bottom line

Hiboy’s EX6 is a budget-priced electric commuter with 20” fat tires, a 500W motor, and a “good sized” battery. Experts lament this bike’s cheap components, including the “horrible” suspension fork, “cheap” grips, basic display, and “awkward” buttons. The EX6 features good accessories, an approachable low-step frame, and decent acceleration, but it’s too cramped for one 6’ rider. Though the Hiboy EX6 might suit smaller riders seeking their first e-bike, experts reckon other brands have more to offer at this price point. Consider alternatives from the likes of Aventon, Lectric, Magicycle, and Vtuvia.

The Hiboy EX6 Electric Bike Riding Review!

I’m trying to think of any cons… I thought I wasn’t going to be a fan of this style of handlebar, but it’s actually very cozy, and it probably has to do with the smoother ride, but yeah guys, nine out of ten.

Affordable Step-Through | Hiboy EX6 | Electric-Bike Review

This bike is easy to ride. I can’t say anything but good things about it, except for one little thing, and that’s the seat gets a little bit uncomfortable after, I don’t know, about five miles of riding.

This E-Bike Is Super Cheap… But Is It Worth Buying? Hiboy EX6 Review

It’s just alright…. because of the price being so cheap, I really can’t complain too much… for somebody that’s just starting off with e-bikes… you don’t want to spend too much money, this is a decent option.
