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 Hyper Shocker is a budget-friendly mountain bike. It has a full suspension setup. The black and red colors on the bike are extremely attractive. Unfortunately, its appearance does not hide its issues. Parts including the chain, derailleur, brakes, handlebars and seat discomfort were all areas of concern for riders. One user warned that this bike is not strong enough to withstand the abuse of doing tricks. Regular use caused the bike to wear quickly for many riders. If you are looking for a quality bike to ride on the trails, this is not it. Users suggest widening your budget for something more durable if you want a bike for anything resembling singletrack. This bike would be ideal for riding around the neighborhood roads if one wants it to last longer than a few rides.

I notice the front suspension just doesn’t have very much play in it at all, so I don’t know how good that’s going to be.
