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!

4 reasons not to buy

  • There's no built-in way to stop the Premium 3 from unfolding when folded.
  • Owners must get a code from Magnum to lower the bike's top speed, puzzling one expert.
  • A tester complains that the grips move around and are slippery with sweaty hands or while wearing gloves.
  • In one tester's view, the monochrome display feels dated.

Bottom line

The Premium 3 is the latest iteration of Magnum's series of compact folding e-bikes. Experts find it impressively capable for a small folding bike. It's fully equipped for commuting, handles light off-road trails, and surpasses its 50-mile range. Testers say the Premium 3 offers ride comfort, stability at high speeds, and solid hill-climbing ability. Despite a couple of easily addressed design issues, the Premium 3 seems to be a strong, albeit slightly pricey, choice in the folding e-bike category.

Magnum Premium 3 Low-Step First Ride Review

Compact utility with plenty of pep. I’ll be curious to ride the Premium 3 for longer distances and see if it’s comfortable for more saddle time or if its sweet spot really is short connections.
