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!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Hiland Coollin. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

5 reasons to buy

  • A flip-flop rear hub gives riders the option of riding in freewheel or fixed gear.
  • A handful of customer reviews said the Coollin was light-weight.
  • It was easy to assemble, for more than one buyer.
  • Owners said the Coollin was ‘sleek’, ‘shiny’ and just plain “great lookin’”.
  • One casual rider said the Coollin “worked well”.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Some new bikes had: broken spokes, scuffs, scratching and both buckled wheels.
  • Several riders said that the stock brakes lacked power.
  • One buyer received a bike of the wrong size and in the wrong color.
  • Metal shavings were found inside a wheel rim.
  • Riders found the 25c tires narrower than expected for a hybrid bike.

Bottom line

This is an exceptionally cheap bike, in both price and quality. One owner said that this rig should roll OK with a new set of wheels. With the Coollin, it was necessary to swap out numerous parts from new (or very soon after buying). Due to this consideration, one owner was moved to comment that, “If you care about the environment and how much waste we produce each day, do NOT buy this bike.” Another owner said that it was good for ‘light usage’. For the amount of upgrades you’ll need to invest in, it could be just as affordable to buy a frame and have your local bike shop build a bike around it.
