Bike Size Charts

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 the Lectric ONE. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

15 reasons to buy

  • Experts laud the Lectric ONE's low-maintenance, grease-free Pinion gearbox and Gates Carbon drive.
  • Testers enjoy how the auto-shifting Pinion gearbox allows them to simply enjoy the ride.
  • Reviewers relish the Pinion Smart.Shift technology, which can maintain a rider’s desired pedal cadence and automatically downshifts when slowing or stopping.
  • Functions such as shift button assignment, shifting behavior, and preferred cadence can be customized via the Pinion Smart.Shift app.
  • Experts relish the “quick” acceleration provided by the “really powerful” motor’s 85Nm of torque.
  • Testers savor the responsiveness of the 96-magnet cadence sensor.
  • The Lectric ONE is available with a 10.4Ah or 14Ah battery. Lectric plans a 20Ah option in the future.
  • Foldable bars and quick-release pedals make transport and storage easier.
  • Lectric includes a rack rated for 30lb, “sturdy” metal fenders, and integrated lights with brake activation.
  • Reviewers appreciate the “powerful” hydraulic disc brakes, which work well with the “grippy” tires to reduce stopping distances.
  • One reviewer enjoys the “natural” pedaling feel. Others note that they can forget they’re riding an e-bike.
  • Experts praise the “nimble” handling and “smooth” ride.
  • The display is easy to read while wearing polarized sunglasses and in bright sunlight, say testers.
  • The 2.5” CHAOYANG tires come with puncture protection and Slime sealant to seal punctures.
  • The Lectric ONE can carry up to 330lb.

6 reasons not to buy

  • The Lectric ONE comes only in black.
  • One expert finds the Pinion app can be glitchy.
  • Two reviewers complain that they have to stop pedaling for the gearbox to shift automatically.
  • The display doesn’t show the selected gear, rues one tester.
  • One reviewer feels the “chunky” battery ruins the aesthetic.
  • An expert hates the “dim” fender-mounted headlight.

Bottom line

Lectric’s ONE e-commuter packs a torquey 750W motor, six-speed Pinion gearbox, and durable Gates Carbon belt drive. Buyers can choose a 499Wh or 672Wh battery. Experts are “blown away” by the technology included for the price, heaping praise on the “smooth,” low-maintenance gearbox and belt drive, and the “peppy,” responsive motor. The “nimble” handling, “smooth” ride, and powerful braking also impress. It’s not all plain sailing, however. The ONE isn’t exactly pretty, the gearbox takes some getting used to, and the headlight is “terrible.” But overall, testers deem the Lectric ONE a “fantastic” commuter e-bike offering outstanding value.
