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!

8 reasons not to buy
- Riders sometimes experienced twitchy steering on the 7500. Experts found themselves overcorrecting steering on sketchy terrain, with the Team model.
- When it comes to weight; the 3500’s alloy frame – and the 6600’s carbon frame – both struck experts as a little heavy.
- The 6500 was limited to a shorter dropper-post due to the shape of the seat tube.
- On loose, high-speed descents, the SixFifty Team felt less confident to experts.
- The 6600 was priced too highly for one expert.
- As far as the Maxxis tires on the 7200 go, experts felt they needed an upgrade.
- The 7200 felt a bit cramped for taller riders. Sizes, in general, seemed smaller than usual.
- The 7200’s dropper-post was billed as under-responsive.
