Where to buy

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!

Bottom line

The Huffy Highland is an incredibly low-cost front-suspension bicycle that can be ridden over uneven asphalt or flat dirt roads. Parts are cheap and low-end. Many complaints related to incorrect assembly of the bike. For one buyer, this led to their elderly father being involved in an accident. These issues can be easily avoided by taking your direct-sale bicycle to your local bike shop, where it can be professionally assembled right out of the box. This is recommended by all manufacturers. Owners were generally happy with their purchase, but stressed that the Highland wasn’t suitable for rowdy off-road use or genuine mountain-bike trails.
