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 Jetson Bike-To-Go. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

9 reasons to buy

  • The Bike-To-Go’s portability suited it to travelling. It fit well in small cars and boats.
  • Cyclists described the ride quality as smooth.
  • The small frame fit shorter riders, at least as short as 5”.
  • The build-quality of the frame was considered to be solid.
  • Flared, ergonomic grips were a comfortable addition to the Bike-To-Go.
  • More than one cyclist found the padded saddle agreeable.
  • 24 inch wheels rolled faster than 20” wheels on other folding bikes.
  • Some owners said that minimal assembly was required; threading on the pedals, inserting the seat-pole & tightening handle bars.
  • Owners said the Bike-2-Go was easy to fold. The locking mechanism was said top be sturdy and held up, even under the weight of huskier riders.

11 reasons not to buy

  • A rear rack can not be installed on this bike, due to the rear suspension.
  • The rear derailleur and cluster are unbranded and doesn’t shift as smoothly as full Shimano might.
  • From some retailers, this bike is misadvertised as a ‘7 speed’, but is actually 6-speed.
  • The Bike-To-Go is pictured with folding pedals but some owners said their pedals did not fold.
  • Tires and tubes were thin, weak and punctured easily.
  • The 24” wheels didn’t fold down as small as 20” wheels on other folding bikes.
  • Buyers said this bike was too bulky for use on public transportation.
  • Taller riders, at 6”, found this bike too small to be practical.
  • Pre-assembly was found wanting; in more than one instance crank arms were not tightened. This resulted in cranks falling off. Other parts needed extensive adjustment.
  • Reportedly, paint chipped easily as a result of the bike’s folding action.
  • The provided kick-stand sometimes broke after short-term use.

Bottom line

Jetson’s Bike-To-Go is superior to a number of cut-rate folding bikes, but is still found lacking in some areas. Pre-assembly resulted in some safety concerns with cranks. Buyers should thoroughly check their bike before riding. It is on the heavy side and includes somewhat ineffective rear-suspension that precludes the possibility of attaching a rear rack. Shortfalls aside, the frame is said to be sturdy and the folding mechanism works effectively. This is more than can be said for some brands.
