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 LeMond Dutch. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

14 reasons to buy

  • The LeMond Dutch is one of the lightest e-bikes on the market at 27lb.
  • Experts agree the Dutch is easy to ride without assistance.
  • Testers appreciate the simple final assembly. LeMond provides all the required tools.
  • One reviewer praises the “responsive” assistance.
  • Experts enjoy the comfortable ride from the upright position and Selle Royal Essenza Plus saddle.
  • Testers compliment the clean, fully integrated design that doesn’t look like an e-bike.
  • The 250W MAHLE X35 hub motor performs well in hill-climbing tests.
  • The motor provides “just the right amount of assistance” for one reviewer. Another compliments its silent operation.
  • Two testers say the Dutch is easy to control.
  • Multiple experts feel this bike is worth the price.
  • The step-through frame is “easy to hop on and off” and comes in three sizes for riders from 5’2” to 6’5”.
  • The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors perform “extremely well.”
  • The “bright” integrated lights turn on with the bike.
  • An 11-speed Shimano GRX drivetrain offers above-average gearing range for this style of bike.

4 reasons not to buy

  • A tester says the narrow 38mm tires fail to absorb bumps on broken pavement.
  • The Dutch is expensive, and LeMond doesn’t include a kickstand or rear rack.
  • The battery can’t be removed for off-bike charging.
  • Users must reach for the button on the top tube to change between pedal assist levels.

Bottom line

The LeMond Dutch is a high-end electric city bike with a carbon frame. A ‘simple,’ integrated design earns compliments from reviewers but reduces user-friendliness and functionality. Slick 38mm tires and an impressively low 27lb weight make this bike easy to pedal without assistance and carry up stairs. The Shimano GRX 11-speed drivetrain and Deore brakes perform well in testing. Experts praise the comfortable, controlled ride and responsive assistance from the silent motor. While a carbon-fiber urban e-bike won’t appeal to everyone, experts agree the Dutch earns its premium price tag.

Lemond E-Bikes Review: Cycling Innovation in the Race to Sustainability

The hidden smarts, integrated lights, and comfort saddle make this step-through electric bike fun to ride… It is lightweight and easy to maneuver around town and carry up the stairs. The Dutch is also incredibly versatile…
