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 Kulana Lakona is a cruisy, laidback bike that’s available in versions to suit every member of the family. Bright colors, relaxed geometry, wide handlebars and a hefty weight make this bike best suited to the lowlands and beachside bike paths. Seven-speed versions were more versatile. As is usual at rock-bottom prices, components are entry-level and some quality control issues were occasionally present. The sturdy frame serves as a good base for gradual upgrades.
