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!

  • Some owners would have liked to see a kickstand on the Ranger.
  • With a heavy load, a steering lock would help omit front wheel flop.

Bottom line

The Laventino Ranger takes the classic ‘Dutch Town Bike’ style and applies it to an aluminum frame. It’s widely available with a 3-speed internal hub, but also exists in 7 and 8 speed guises with Nexus internal hubs. Wide 50c tires and a large, sturdy front rack make this bike well suited to commuting and city errands. Somewhat surprisingly, however, owners said that the Selle Royal saddle and relaxed geometry made this a comfortable rig on 30 and 45 mile rides. One owner said it was not only good for daily commutes but also for trips to the beach. In few instances, screws were missing and small scratches were present after shipping. All-in-all, it was seen as a durable and affordable option for a utilitarian cruiser.
