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 200-lumen Knog Blinder Skull Front light is a bright and fun option for urban riding. Users are happy with the strong visibility it produces in traffic-ridden areas, letting them be seen from up to 1500 feet away. But because it isn’t directional, the Blinder Skull Front light doesn’t cast light on the path in front of the rider, in unlit outdoor locations. Knog says the light will last up to 60 hours on ‘Eco-Flash’ mode. From user experience, battery life can be as short as 2.5 hours on higher-power modes. By report, it’s durable. The provided straps fit around a variety of handlebar and headtube widths.
