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!

9 reasons to buy

  • Experts laud the Magicycle Commuter's belt drive for its quiet operation and low maintenance requirements.
  • Reviews demonstrate the 350W motor's ample power, climbing well and easily reaching 20mph.

10 reasons not to buy

  • The single-speed gearing and absence of a throttle means starting from a dead stop is more challenging.
  • An expert says the battery indicator is inaccurate, dropping significantly after 15 miles.
  • The non-removable battery can make charging inconvenient.
  • The Magicycle Commuter has a high minimum height of 5'7".
  • Multiple users report inner tubes exploding despite being within the correct pressure range.
  • The small rear rack, designed for pannier bags only, is described as incomplete and impractical by some users.
  • The taillight isn't built-in and requires manual charging.
  • The Commuter lacks mounting options for a bottle holder.
  • One expert reports excessive battery loss while the bike is not in use.

Bottom line

The Magicycle Commuter is a Class 1 single-speed electric bike available as a step-over or step-through. It features a quiet belt drive and 350W motor and earns praise for its climbing performance and stopping power. Users also appreciate the looks, low maintenance needs, simplicity, and city-friendly design. Some drawbacks include limited range and gearing, low-quality inner tubes, and battery fluctuations. However, despite these flaws, experts feel the Commuter is a fun and practical option for urban commuting at an affordable price.
